The BBC is to switch off the news and sport text services on the TV red button early next year.

The decision spells the end of reading headlines, football scores, weather, travel news and more on TV sets, 45 years after the launch of Ceefax.

Haven't looked at it for years but i've lots of happy memories as a kid actually believing the transfer rumours.

I wonder if anybody was actually dumb enough to ring one of those 'clublines'.

Ceefax.

Fondest memory is the night me and a mate had done a 14 timer on the midweek football and sitting in my local boozer we were sweating on Ross County in the Scottish League Cup. Had to wait until it got to page 35 of 35 before finding out we'd won 6 grand.

People did, you know.

It was the internet that basically killed them off.
