An in-vision Ceefax slot comes to an end on Christmas Eve.
[00:00:00] TELETEXT IN-VISION: Ceefax ends an early morning in-vision slot with a simple Christmas tree. But not a teletext graphic character in sight – the tree is made up of conventional, non-graphic ASCII characters.
Ceefax certainly wanted the page to be seen – it was shown for over a minute before the test card took over.
The in-vision transmission on BBC One went out 8.30am – 9am.
[00:01:14] TEST CARD: teletext pages gave way to the test card at 9am. The test card remained in place until just prior to the first programme of the day Gymnast at 9.20am.
Can you identify the track playing here?
