~ TV Whirl - Call up teletext on your remote ~

Launching today is the latest feature to go on the site - the original Teletext broadcasts for clips. The revisiting of a lot of old tapes in the recent updates actually served two purposes - whilst it was a good chance to recapture content in higher quality, it was also to recover the teletext data on the broadcasts. Whilst some cleanup work is still required, these will start to go live on the site in the next few weeks, launching today with services from Oracle from 1991 and Teletext Ltd/Channel 3 North East in 1997.

Next to some a growing number of video clips on pages you will now find a teletext button as well as the regular play one. Press this to call up the relevant text service that was being broadcast at the time of the video's transmission. Or you can always just look at the latest updates page, but it's less fun!

Wherever possible I've tried to pull in a mix of topical news, opinions and weather, all to give a real fascinating snapshot of events happening at that time.
