    Re: The ITV network map from 1978

    Thanks for the info. I've seen a website that 'preserves' some Ceefax screens and explains a bit about it. We had something in Canada like that, I would see the front page screen of it on one...

    I've always thought the Greek islands would be amazing places to see first-hand, especially Santo Rini.

    Re: The ITV network map from 1978

    This is something I'm a bit hazy on... did Central have a live show, a text bulletin board, or something else for people looking for work? I've read a lot about the CeeFax and Oracle services, was it...

    There's no excuse for something like that. Non-acknowledgement would suffice or a return to sender. Perhaps they had some bone to pick with Christianity or something along those lines? If a wiccan...

    Re: The ITV network map from 1978

    Thanks for the extra info. I think I have a fairly intricate grip on ITV and Channel 4 but there were some things about the BBC I wasn't sure about... until now, thank you! Imagine if there'd ever...

    I wanted to add that I see opt outs are mentioned, and it sounds like there were London made BBC programs not shown by BBC Cymru/Wales at all, correct? And if I have got anything confused please...

    Thank you all for your memories about this, I've been really fascinated learning about the ITV region system and how it used to operate. It's so cool to have various points of views from viewers back...
