Don't know if this is national or not, but I was in Watford yesterday night, tried Ceefax on both BBC One and BBC Two only to get a message saying that the service is off air and will return shortly.

Just tried back home in Manchester, and it's doing the same thing. There are only three pages running too:

100 - Index/Apology
199 - Apology
888 - Subtitles "We cannot bring you subtitles at present."

Ceefax is fully functional in the South West.

The text turned Greek for me, on 501! For just a few seconds.

Fine in Yorkshire. Any chance of caps of the pages you do have?

No caps, at the moment, sorry. Will upload a couple in a while.

Having a few problems with the capture card.

Well, it would have to be, wouldn't it?

Otherwise there would be complaints from Bideford.
