Pretty pixels: Teletext art
An arts festival dedicated to Teletext opens on Thursday. The television text format was once very popular in Britain, and while it’s no longer in use there, it is still popular in many countries. Juha van Ingen is the Finnish man behind the International Teletext Art Festival, but first we hear from Dan Farrimond who is a Teletext artist in Britain.
