Clips from the 80s show Max Headroom.

Max Headroom is a British-produced science fiction television series by Chrysalis/Lakeside Productions that aired on ABC from March 1987 to May 1988 in the United States. The series was based on the Channel 4 British TV pilot Max Headroom: 20 Minutes into the Future.

The series is set in a futuristic dystopia ruled by an oligarchy of television networks. Even the government functions primarily as a puppet state of the network executives, serving mainly to pass laws — such as banning off switches on televisions — that protect and consolidate the networks’ power. Television technology has advanced to the point that viewers’ physical movements and thoughts can be monitored through their television sets; however, almost all non-television technology has been discontinued or destroyed. The only real check on the power of the networks is Edison Carter, a crusading investigative journalist who regularly exposes the unethical practices of his own employer, and the team of allies both inside and outside the system who assist him in getting his reports to air and protecting him from the forces that wish to silence or kill him.
