Ceefax last night after 38 years

After being on our TV screens for 38 years. Tonight marks the last night ever of Ceefax. With the digital switchover concluding tonight in Northern Ireland, the last analogue signal carrying the Ceefax service will be switched off  at 11:30pm, bringing the BBC’s original teletext service to a close, 38 years after its launch.

Something very sad about Ceefax closing down. When I was younger, way before the Internet and 24/7 News channels. Other than newspapers, it was the only way to be kept updated with UK and World News, Weather and Sports news.
