Ceefax on BBC1

? (November 2003)

I maybe being daft but I don't remember seeing Ceefax on BBC 1 since years ago. Right now the announcer talking over the wheelchair ident sounded like she was reading the wrong script then said some pages from ceefax then bobs yer uncle. Is this normal or just to fill time as a one off?

Well, no Pages from Ceefax on either 1 or 2 at the moment!

Was this just now?

Just a minute ago - didn't last long and was on BBC 1. This isn't normal is it?

It then cut to the programme that is on just now. Maybe it was just a time filler as they were early. Lasted a couple of minutes at most!

What region? Normally only Scotland uses Ceefax on BBC1.

Well, judging by his ITV region and BBC News region, I'd say he was watching BBC One NI. Looking at DigiGuide, there's nothing scheduled as 'Pages from Ceefax' or any other gaps in the schedule so presumably it's just a time-filler, or they had some kind of technical problem and decided to go with something quick and easy to just plonk on-screen.

Yes, but this is TV Forum - the place where people don't necessarily watch their own regions! According to the BBC ONE website, Scotland had ten minutes of Weatherview between 12.50 and 1am... which I very much doubt!

I'm a she, not a he! BBC Northern Ireland it was on. The announcer started to read something then stoped and then read something else - like it was a last second thing so probably it was a time filler.
