I don't know if General is general enough for this query, but I wasn't sure where exactly this fits with regard to the sub-folders - here goes: I'm looking for help finding particular photographic documentation of a 'broadcast signal intrusion' that (according to Wiki) took place in July 2007 on a D.C. television station.

On July 13, 2007, a grainy photo of a man and woman interrupted Washington, D.C. ABC affiliate WJLA's digital or HD signal. The picture was not transmitted over the analog signal, however. The incident was deemed a genuine signal intrusion by various websites but has since been confirmed to be the result of an older HDTV encoder malfunctioning in the early morning hours and going undetected. Station management stated that the image was from an advertisement for The Oprah Winfrey Show.

There's a WayBack link used as the citation for this paragraph, but the photo used in it has not survived archiving/retrieval.

Now, purely to quench a curiosity thirst, I would really like to see what exactly was broadcast, but I have never been able to find a confirmed example of what exactly what visually going on in the incident described above. If someone could point me toward photos/video of this event I would be very grateful.

PS: As I never like being the centre of attention in a thread, I'd like to throw the doors open to any stories/chat about other broadcast intrusions/hijacks (Max Headroom and Captain Midnight incidents are the obvious ones, the Wiki link provides more examples). Thanks in advance, be it help with my query or for providing good readin'

Here's one from here in the UK. The 1977 Southern TV broadcast intrusion. A guy calling himself Vrillon broke into the transmission and said:

"This is the voice of Vrillon, a representative of the Ashtar Galactic Command, speaking to you. For many years you have seen us as lights in the skies.

We speak to you now in peace and wisdom as we have done to your brothers and sisters all over this, your planet Earth.

We come to warn you of the destiny of your race and your world so that you may communicate to your fellow beings the course you must take to avoid the disaster which threatens your world, and the beings on our worlds around you.

This is in order that you may share in the great awakening, as the planet passes into the New Age of Aquarius.

The New Age can be a time of great peace and evolution for your race, but only if your rulers are made aware of the evil forces that can overshadow their judgments.

Be still now and listen, for your chance may not come again.

All your weapons of evil must be removed. The time for conflict is now past and the race of which you are a part may proceed to the higher stages of its evolution if you show yourselves worthy to do this.

You have but a short time to learn to live together in peace and goodwill.

Small groups all over the planet are learning this, and exist to pass on the light of the dawning New Age to you all.

You are free to accept or reject their teachings, but only those who learn to live in peace will pass to the higher realms of spiritual evolution.

Hear now the voice of Vrillon, a representative of the Ashtar Galactic Command, speaking to you. Be aware also that there are many false prophets and guides operating in your world.

They will suck your energy from you - the energy you call money and will put it to evil ends and give you worthless dross in return.

Your inner divine self will protect you from this. You must learn to be sensitive to the voice within that can tell you what is truth, and what is confusion, chaos and untruth.

Learn to listen to the voice of truth which is within you and you will lead yourselves onto the path of evolution.

This is our message to our dear friends. We have watched you growing for many years as you too have watched our lights in your skies. You know now that we are here, and that there are more beings on and around your Earth than your scientists admit.

We are deeply concerned about you and your path towards the light and will do all we can to help you. Have no fear, seek only to know yourselves, and live in harmony with the ways of your planet Earth.

We of the Ashtar Galactic Command thank you for your attention. We are now leaving the plane of your existence. May you be blessed by the supreme love and truth of the cosmos."

It's widely regarded as a hoax. Spooky though if you were watching TV and that broke through

I first saw that on a show called It's A Mystery - kind of like a Strange But True for kids and presented by Neil Buchanan (yes, he of Art Attack fame). They played what I now imagine was a reconstruction of the broadcast and, yeah, it was still pretty eerie
