Those mourning the imminent final demise of analogue teletext in Britain may like to take a look at this short piece on the BBC website about the similar ending of "Pages from Ceefax". I'm pleased to say that they've used an appropriate soundtrack for the most part! It also gets a point from me for having Grandad (with Clive Dunn) in the TV listings; I used to watch that quite a bit.

Technology moves on, i guess what is surprising is that Ceefax has lasted so long. I guess it was the first computer based electronic information service that came to the mass market
