Teletext R Podcast, 14 April 2020 – Teletext In A Time of Crisis

In these testing times, teletext is needed more than ever. Could this signal a revival for the BBC Red Button?

Also in this episode, we discuss how teletext artists are documenting the lockdown, and Teletext R superfan Wayne Dearden performs some excellent teletext covers of popular musical tracks.

Show thumbnail is part of ‘Inattention‘ by Raquel Meyers.
