The GFS on TELETEXT
Great free publicity for GFS
The best publicity has got to be FREE publicity and our web-site received plenty of this on December 21, 1998 when the details of the site were featured on the Channel 4 computer teletext pages. This can only help to attract new members and keep George Formby's name in the limelight - were it belongs.

WHAT TELETEXT WAS… Well lets just say what teletext was - to me. You can find plenty of information on the internet on the subject of teletext but to me personally, teletext was a brilliant British invention that came free of charge on a television bought around around 1974 and up until as late as 2012. I loved teletext! Long before the internet this was all that there was to feed information and news on all sort of subjects to TV viewers. When there was nothing to watch on TV, you could always rely on teletext for news, magazine features, sports articles, record reviews, film reviews and even games! I would use it every day - and then one day I found a page which invited the user to interact and supply information on any web page that they had produced. One page site Back in 1997 when the GFS site was first created, it just a page with a postal address, and email address and a telephone number but it very soon started to build to 460 odd pages that there are today. Our first site address was http://www.saqnet.co.uk/users/ formbysociety
