Tyne Tees Television turns 60!

This week is an important milestone for us. Tuesday 15th January marks exactly 60 years since Tyne Tees Television first went on-air.

Since then, we've broadcast thousands of hours of television and entertained generations of families across the region.

Over the next week, we'll be tracing the Tyne Tees story every night on our programme. But don't worry if you missed it, here, you can view the memories we've shared.
