Teletext Time Machine: A full Ceefax service from 1979

Ever wanted to hop in a time machine and go back to 1979?

Me neither – I couldn’t live without my Tamagotchi. But thanks to Jason Robertson‘s first VHS tape recovery from the 1970s, you can revisit the decade without worrying about how to get back to 2016. Neither do you have to worry about Arnold bursting through bill posters and asking you for boots and a motorcycle.

How do I do that?

Browse the links and images below and pretend it really is 1979 again!
