[Audio] In Conversation With Mort Smith – Teletext Block Party 2022-04-24

Carlos presents a conversation with teletext legend Mort Smith, formerly of Ceefax and Intelfax, from the Sunday of Block Party 2022. This was not a scheduled panel, rather a discussion that broke out regarding Intelfax’s bid for the ITV/Channel 4 teletext offer in 1993.

Due to its impromptu nature, only the second half of this discussion was recorded. However, we are thankful for the magnificent Peter Kwan, who kindly captured it for us all to hear!

During this audio clip, you also hear the voices of Julie Morton-Smith, Peter Kwan and Jason Robertson.
