It’s a secret no more – the legendary Steve ‘Horsenburger’ Horsley is returning to your TV screens in September 2018. Germany’s ARD Text have announced that their latest teletext exhibition, running from 1st to 30th September, will feature the sixel wizard’s vibrant Videotext visuals.

Steve began his pixel art career designing horses at Ladbrokes and palm trees at Teletext Ltd in the mid-1990s.
