BeebMaster - Teletext Grabber

Teletext Grabber

The Teletext page grabber is one of the features of the Advanced Teletext Filing System. It allows up to 20 records at once - or pages - to be captured from the Teletext signal and saved in the BBC micro's RAM. In September 2009, I wrote a grabber utility to cycle through all the pages and subpages of a TV station's Teletext output and save them all.

By the time the Granada analogue was switched off at the beginning of December 2009, I had 100,000 pages of Teletext saved in my Econet L3 Compact Flash file server!
