The index shown here on this page dates, we think, from around 1976/77. Actually it was not so much a printed index as typed - and on an 'old-fashioned' typewriter at that. For clarity I replicated the information in tables below...

The BBC1 magazine provided the up-to-the minute service which was complemented by a weekly magazine on BBC2.

The same Newsflash service maintained on BBC1 will also appear on page 250 BBC2.
The Newsflash will be superimposed on the ordinary TV picture
TIME CODED PAGE 260
As on BBC1, and common to both magazines, a separate page can be put out every minute. At the moment this page is being used to demonstrate the REVEAL button.
All CEEFAX pages are subject to change on day-to-day basis as new uses are tried out. When in doubt see Contents List 296.297/298
