The BBC's Ceefax service was closed in April of this year, a casualty of our increasingly digital age, and the once futuristic info-service was turned off for good day today with the shutting down of the analogue signal in Northern Ireland.
Ceefax started in 1974 and was a world-leading service then. A new documentary produced by the BBC will tell the story of how this once industry-leading service has become a casualty of technological development.
As the signal has been turned off permanently, a comical ‘suicide note’ has been found online, lamenting Ceefax’s passing.
The note says:

When I first started out in 1974, I was the future ¬– TV’s first robot newsreader. But what once seemed cutting-edge is now regarded as hopelessly old-fashioned ,and I have been frozen out by the powers that be, yet another victim of BBC ageism.
I can’t take it any more. It’s a struggle to get up for the nightshift, ad my poor pixels are tired. My friend Oracle said it would end like this.
Goodbye cruel world.
