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.

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.
