How BBC2 said goodbye to Pages from Ceefax

Pages From Ceefax, which shows pages from the BBC's teletext news service accompanied by background music, has been shown on BBC Two in the gaps between shows since 1982, making it one of the longest-running features on the channel.

But with the full text service ending on Tuesday, the feature - broadcast overnight in recent years - was shown for the final time on the morning of Monday 22 October.

A special countdown in the top-left hand corner and a final screen of classic Ceefax graphics marked the final moments on air.
