Teletext Yorkshire 2011

This is the last new sub-page of 126. It's easy to forget how Teletext used to work with sub-pages. Many pages had lots of sub-pages, and if you were trying to read something in order, or looking for information on a particular sub-page, you had to wait till it came round again. You couldn't just dial up the sub-page you wanted and have it delivered straight away! Although some televisions eventually did have the ability for you to request a specific sub-page, it didn't mean you got to see it any quicker - the current page just didn't update itself until the chosen sub-page was broadcast.
