Some interesting videos from the BT Film Archive -
An Introduction to Prestel - How it will be the answer to everything!
Prestel Innovations - Some of the planned extensions to the standard - Prextend, Picture Prestel, and Gateway.  Only the last of these got implemented in the live service.


Me, logging into Prestel, checking my emails, and browsing the chatlines.
(Data recorded on a BBC Micro, 1988, and reconstituted 2015!)

Thanks to Ant for finding the videos and recreating the pages for you.


NBC "Telefuture" from 1980 - An American program about the future of information on your TV set, but with a small section about the British Teletext and viewdata services.  See if you can spot the Noughts-and-crosses; the Prestel main indexes are easier noticed.
