• 60 Years on Air with Tyne Tees TV

A quarter of a million viewers watched on the first night. 60 years on, we’re inviting all the region’s goggle boxers to grab an armchair and binge watch some classic programmes and news clips created in the station’s first year through to the 80s, all from the huge archive collection of Tyne Tees telly on film preserved here at the North East Film Archive.
