    This site is dedicated to the preservation, celebration and analysis of Teletext, the television information service introduced to British television in 1974 and familiar to UK viewers as Ceefax on the BBC and Oracle on ITV. Featuring a podcast, articles, archived pages from the service, and even an application that allows you to create your own Teletext page, the site is a labour of love, the pinnacle of which is a teletext time machine: a fully interactive Ceefax service for the 20th July 1979.

    Clovis Salmon - aka Sam the Wheels - is a first generation Jamaican migrant who arrived in the UK in the 1950s. Between the 1960s and the 1980s Salmon filmed the everyday life of the Caribbean community in Brixton, making him one of the first black documentary filmmakers in Britain. This site is a participatory arts project featuring digitised footage from Salmon’s personal archives as well as numerous video interviews with Brixtonians, including gay rights activists, anarchist squatters, rectors, artists, Rastafarians and dub poet Linton Kwesi Johnson. The site appears not to have been maintained for some time but most of the videos are still playing out.
