DXTV via Sporadic E on 50MHz

Nice strong signals from Europe on the 50MHz band this afternoon, I worked:
Jose, EA1HMP, in Spain,
Pinto CT1ANO, from Rio Tinto, Portugal
Uwe CT7AIU, in Portugal, and
Juha - using the OH5C Radio Club callsign in Finland.
But there was a lot of TV buzz. So I hastily connected up my old Plustron 5" portable and got some pictures on the channel marked "3" on the dial  ... but where are the pictures from? Is that Greek text? very few countries broadcast TV on VHF anymore.



All good fun - I haven't received any DXTV via sporadic E for ages ...
