Raspberry Pi client for the TELSTAR service

Wed Jul 04, 2018 1:36 pm

The TELSTAR Viewdata System provides a simple viewdata/videotex platform in the style of Prestel, accessed via the internet. A suitable client for this service is bundled with the latest release of BBC BASIC for Raspbian which may be downloaded from here. This client will also access other similar services such as the archived TetraChloroMethane bulletin board (CCl4).

TELSTAR carries some experimental Telesoftware, itself written in BBC BASIC, which may be downloaded and run using the client application.
