Remember when the BBC used to show a selection of pages from Ceefax during gaps in the daytime schedule in the 1980s and 1990s, and in later years overnight on BBC Two?
Well, you can now relive the experience with Pages from Ceefax Live.
Nathan Dane has recreated a large portion of the BBC’s Ceefax service using data scraped from the BBC website, providing the latest news, sport, business, weather and TV listings, Ceefax-style.
A recreation of the Pages from Ceefax service – complete with muzak – is available 24-hours-a-day *. Just click play on the video stream below.
Alternatively, there’s an interactive version of the Ceefax recreation here.
NOTE: this is a personal project and is not endorsed by the BBC.
* The service is still prone to outages but is normally restored within hours. So if it’s not available right now, please check back later in the day.
