Welcome to the Teletext Archive!

This site aims to be a depository for archive teletext services from around the world to be stored for research purposes. Its ambition is to make the uploading of teletext services as simple and quick as possible. And to be able to play Bamboozle.


Forthcoming features:

Use of assets.

This website is © Jason Robertson. The teletext pages, information and graphics are © the respective broadcasters. The recovered data is courtesy of the respective recoverers. The rendered graphics are © The Teletext Archive but can be used freely provided that you attribute them to the recoverer: credit to the page restorer (if applicable) and a link to archive.teletextarchaeologist.org would be appreciated :-) Tag @grim_fandango on Twitter and more often than not I'll retweet!


This website employs anonymous tracking to monitor general usage. If you need to register an account (which you only need if you are adding recovered teletext services), we will only use this account to potentially contact you about teletext services that you have uploaded. No information is passed on to third parties.
