UK Teletext transmissions began in 1973 and continued on terrestrial television until 2012, when the last of the analogue transmitters was switched off.

Even today, a small number of cable television channels provide a Teletext service, and many still carry subtitles on page 888, but sadly Ceefax is no more.

The BBC Micro, with its Teletext decoding chip, could download and display broadcast pages of Teletext - and even software transmitted in the Teletext signal - using a special adapter.

This section is all about the BBC Micro and Teletext, and I hope you will click on the picture links below to learn more.
