    The Artist’s View

    In this music documentary series, bands and solo artists including Sting, AC/DC, Queen, Metallica, A-ha and U2 talk about their iconic music videos and how they came about. In this episode, A-ha’s Magne Furuholmen talks about the inception of the videos for ‘Take On Me’ and ‘The Sun Always Shines on TV’. Furuholmen shares, "We were hopelessly behind. [The music video as an artform] wasn’t a big part of our psyche as a band." Director Steve Barron changed all that and ended up making many of A-ha’s now iconic music videos.

    The Artist’s View: A-ha premieres at 9.25pm, Saturday 4 June on SBS VICELAND. This episode and 13 others in the series, ranging from Fatboy Slim to Queen and U2, are now streaming at SBS On Demand.

    I don't remember now if this is the whole segment about Take On Me or if I saw any more clips. :/

    I hope you are right and someone uploads it later, and with better quality. ;)

  • Update: it seems it is from 2011 and has since been shown in several countries (and more than once). I have found references to it in several posts on Facebook, for instance. Magne talked about not just Take On Me but also TSASOTV and Manhattan Skyline, at least. It was part of a series called "Video Killed the Radio Star":

    Musicians and those closest to them reflect on their previous work.

    There is probably some old thread here about this. ;)
