I’m sure you’ve all seen the new Teletext ad featuring the song “Da Da Da” by 80’s pop group Trio.
If not, you need a smack. But you can see it just here.

Anyway, a man called NightowlDarksky made a video explaining the joys of Teletext on analogue telly, and even though it goes on a bit and its rather nerdy, I like it.

Another video, but this time a 1991 advert for ITV and Channel 4’s old Teletext service Oracle, “the ultimate newspaper”. Those were the days*.

And to end it all, some Samsung plasma screen Teletext troubles.

*I’d just like to point out I’m a child of 1993.
