Max Headroom interviews Sting and David Byrne

Portrayed by Matt Frewer as “The World’s first computer-generated TV host”, the computer-generated appearance was really achieved with prosthetic make up and hand-drawn backgrounds, as the computer technology of the time was not sufficiently advanced to achieve the desired effect.

In the first video, Sting is promoting The Dream of the Blue Turtles as well as The Bride, his first movie after Dune, so it’s likely around 1985. Byrne is there to promote True Stories, his only directorial feature, so this is likely around 1986.
