The bbc are pulling the pin on their overnight “pages from ceefax” from all of their channels in 2012. Pages from ceefax is a news service that provides the latest in news, sport and finance in 8-bit style graphics, usually accompanied by stock library music. It is a spin-off from the teletext service of the same name. It has garnered a cult following over the years and is still, despite us being in the heady days of the internet, a legitimate and quick way of getting the latest news. Pages from ceefax also entertains too. Where else can you read about the latest massacre or political upheavals whilst being serenaded by piano jazz? It is a cultural icon of television history, it has historical roots and i can justify paying my licence fee for it. I’d rather watch pages from ceefax than reruns of jeremy kyle. When i had no books as a kid i used pages from ceefax to help me learn to read. Please sign up to keep this peace of television history alive.
