The Teletext Archaeologist’s new web archive hosted at teletextarchive.com has this weekend reached 2,000 full recovered services.
Launched on 1 April 2023 (no joke) when the recoveries were moved from TeletextArchaeologist.org, it now features in excess of 1.8 million teletext pages from over 100 television channels worldwide.
Thus far, a total of 25 teletext archivists have contributed services restored from domestic video tape spanning almost 50 years – at time of writing, the most up-to-date is from RTS2 in February 2022. The site offers the ability to search by date, broadcaster or recoverer.
Webmaster and teletext archivist Jason Robertson expressed his gratitude on Twitter, saying: “Thanks to all the uploaders for their hard work and to everyone who’s visited.”
Other specialist archives can be found under the ‘Archive’ tab in the navigation bar under the header of this page.
