Published on Feb 4, 2008

The second of a series of 4 commercials made in 1980 to launch Prestel, the Post Office's Viewdata service. The special TVs needed to use prestel had a phone line coming out of the back of them. The first time you could go online. The commercial was made without filming anything with a camera apart from the opening shot. Trillion in Soho devised a special bit of kit to take the screen image directly to large format video to edit.
