I just found out today that Teletext, the on-screen text information service shown on ITV and Channel 4, is to end in January 2010.
And I'm rather gutted about this. Yes I know you can find out anything on the internet, but it's been a daily ritual for me, for many many years at EuropeCrazy HQ to visit my favourite teletext pages, from local news and sport to ITV's entertainment pages with the soaps round-up and viewers' 'talking points', to my favourite of all - Channel 4's music section "Planet Sound" with its news, reviews, interviews and 'The Void' letters page (ok I'm showing my age now....texts, then!).
And let's not forget Bamboozle with Bamber Boozler, the pixellated quizmaster ;)
They will all be much missed.
