Many, many years ago when I was an apprentice with BT, on a snowy day when I couldn’t make it up to London, I had to report to my local BT building. This was in Croydon, which is one of the main centres for CEEFAX, and they put me with this group for the day and let me design my own page. It didn’t say much, just ‘Hello this is Riazor Blue’s CEEFAX page’, but it was up there on air for about three weeks.
