The title page for the news and sportsreel sequence
This is the standard test page of most German public teletext services.
Further test pages:
  • subpage 1/3 is the clock-cracker*
  • subpage 2/3 is colour bars (rare on Teletext!)
  • subpage 3/3 shows one of the two VIDEOTEXT logos which have been used by ARD/ZDF since 1980.

* recent orthography reform in Germany has replaced the character with ss - but that is unlikely to happen here!
