Teefax, the community teletext service created by Peter Kwan, has recently been signal boosted by numerous news outlets. Most significantly, its appearance on The One Show marked teletext’s return to the BBC almost 8 years after the demise of Ceefax.

Does this pave the way for a 50th anniversary documentary? What would you like to see for #Teletext50?

Also, there are some ‘celebrity’ appearances and Carlos is the first guest on the Teletext R phone in!
