The Elite computer game was one example of different graphics modes being on the screen at once: Mode 4 (monochrome, 320x256) for the main wireframed vector graphics game play and Mode 5 (4 colour 160x256) for the player's ships cockpit controls on the bottom section of the screen.

I wondered if it would have been possible to mix Mode 7 teletext with a graphics mode. My thinking is it's not possible, but what would be the definitive answer here?

    Given mode 7 used additional hardware and different wiring between chips I’d be surprised if this was possible but I don’t know for certain, thus the comment vs. answer. – Joe Jul 22 at 14:54
