SETI: The Search for Extra Teletextual Intelligence

While working at Wigan STEAM, Dan received a mysterious message via the teletext on his television. He thinks the message came from outer space, but does not know exactly who or what sent it. However, he strongly believes that extraterrestrial beings chose to contact him in particular because he is the only one that still uses teletext.

In response to the aliens, Dan is planning to send a golden VHS tape to the edge of the Universe. But first and most importantly, he must figure out what the message says.

Can you help Dan solve the alien message mystery? Who sent it, and what will we say to the extra-teletextual beings in reply?
