lo... yes... the BBC called it Ceefax and ITV called theirs the Oracle. Pages from these ended up replacing the trusty old testcards.

Another major selling point of teletext was that it offered the chance to view various programmes with subtitles. In 1982, the BBC broadcast a disasterous historical epic serial "The Borgias" and hired an Italian actor for the main role who unfortunately was so unintelligible that some commented it was perhaps a deliberate ploy by the BBC to get people using the subtitles on Ceefax!
Best Wishes,
