England v West Indies, 2nd Test, Headingley, 3rd day

Watching cricket on Ceefax

Remember a screen like this?

Ceefax page 340

Ceefax was the lifeline most tragic cricket fans relied on, and Rod reminds me just what an invaluable tool it was. 341 was always on in our house. “Don’t change the channel, I’m watching the cricket!” I remember sprinting home from school when Mike Atherton and Jack Russell did the unthinkable, and was amazed to see both their names in white at stumps. Ah, great days they were. Ceefax has gone all interactive and flashy, nowadays (does look pretty good though, I admit).

Some geek’s put up the whole Ceefax, live, on t’interweb. Knock yourselves out.
