A couple of small things

A teletext timeline

It has been suggested that maybe a timeline/wallchart could be one possible outcome for the ersearch project. Perhaps this could be transposed into a more Teletext-esque format for presentation.

Five text
Just a few screen grabs from one of my favourite teletext services, design-wise.
On 31-Dec-2001 the contract for the main teletext service carried by Channel 5 expired and the ancillary service on magazine 5 was revamped.

Note the animated Gif showing the advertisements switching between frames, one possible conversion of the format for the web. Pro - remains faithful to the original format, is quicker. Con - not really interactive - no hold button.
