Red Button digital text changes

We have recently made some changes to the BBC's Red Button text services. We performed some technical work behind the scenes to remove the final parts of the publishing processes still powered by the recently discontinued Ceefax service.

We’ve tried to keep any changes to the public service to a minimum, but there will be some alterations to the content provided. Details of the changes are listed on the Red Button service on p998.

    Agree that the content pages for Community News; Disability and Read Hear (all under Community) need bringing back, as well as having all the news stories shown individually (as occurs with the main new stories) rather than currently mixed up, without any headings - not very user friendly.

    Also please bring back the “next” button on all the news stories, so you can easily move from one news item to the next rather than only having the option to go back (the previous button) to the contents page each time, when you want to read another news item - again not very user friendly.

    I rather like the four figure numbers: they have one fewer digit than the shortcodes for BBC News and BBC National and Local Radio Stations!

    Why on earth is the Wales news section being merged with the South West - they've got absolutely nothing to do with each other and up here in North Wales I don't have any interest in the happenings of Cornwall and Devon when looking up local news.

    Also why are you persisting with 4 digit page numbers. The Ceefax excuse was weak at best but now that's gone surely with fairly minimal renumbering indexes can be given three digit numbers considering individual news pages are not numbered.
