TTTV Bob Johnson
Bob was a legend in the forecasting scene in the North East. Unlike most of the Granada Media weather forecasters, Bob worked solely on Tyne Tees' weather from Newcastle (although they did experiment with him on Border as well for a few weeks, long before the merged operation in the North). He became famous for funny little anagrams, the banter built up with fellow news presenter Mike Neville, and for telling viewers to watch out for 'Skitey Bits'... he at least once explained what Skitey bits are before, but I don't think many people actually remember or even really cared! After 17 years, Bob finally retired from forecasting at Tyne Tees at the end of 2008.
TTTV Weather Summer 2003
In summer 2003, the wonderous day we'd been waiting for finally arrived. The sponsorship deal with Budget ended... well, considering how little they invested in those horrible ads, they obviously couldn't afford to keep it going for long! In it's place, a slightly better set from Topps Tiles appeared. This version features a small child painting the sun! Thanks to Iam Burn for the clip.
