Anthony Jelly (pictured, born 1922 in London) was appointed Managing Director of Tyne Tees Television on June 19th 1958. He joined TTT that October, after leaving his job as General Manager at STV. His career had began before the second war as assistant director at Elstree for British National, then at Pinewood for Rank. After serving with RAF in the war, mostly in South East Asia, back in civvies, he was, with Patrick Henry, behind the launch of the Eagle comic.

A few Tyne Tees Television Shows
The reality did not quite match the high ideals that had been promised by George and Alfred Black.

TTT's first home grown comedy series was The Bill Maynard Show, which received a thumbs down from the critics, running from Jan 19th for 8 weeks until Mar 9th. It was replaced on 16th March with the Bobby Thompson Show (pictured), a domestic comedy also starring Phyllis Thompson.

The One O'Clock Show ran to over 1,000 shows until it ended in March 1964, the last programme included Joe Ferris, Austin Steele, Jack ('Wacky Jacky') Haig, Colin Prince, George Romaine, Len Marten, Katie Beckley, Rees Hughes.
The programme listings on this page illustrate that audiences came from different local towns. But on April 17th 1959 it was two hundred press people who were invited- the reason was the theme was newspapers.
The One O'Clock Show for April 2nd 1959 starred Terry O'Neill, with Austin Steele, Chris Langford, George Romaine and the Dennis Ringrowe Quartet. But though not credited in The Viewer listing, Jack Haig and his wife Betty were also appearing. Producer was the legendary David Croft. The audience for the show at this era was estimated at between 100,000 and 150,000 "housewives." On April 28th 1960 there was a special show celebrating its 300th edition.
Special guests were not always announced, but on April 1st 1959 Bernard Braden and Barbara Kelly appeared. Other big names in one off spots on the show included Shirley Bassey, Cleo Laine, Alma Cogan, Arthur Askey, Harry Secombe, Norman Vaughan, Bruce Forsyth, Frankie Howerd, Arthur Haynes, and Max Bygraves (Mar 19th 1963)

Happy Go Lucky (1959-1964)
Tyne Tees Television's children's programme was a miscellany of live action and a Popeye cartoon. It also included children's song requests.
The human stars were Larry Parker, who also wrote most of the scripts, and Jack Haig (Wacky Jacky), who joined in September 1959, as reporter on the fictional Ambleford Gazette, whose clowning around frequently lead to mishaps. Once Haig fell off a studio roof top and was almost unconscious. Another time, as a plumber, a jet of water sprayed at him and injured one of his eyes. Larry also played Lucky the Clown, and had a rabbit puppet named Theodore.
The first show went out on Tuesday January 22nd 1959. The 200th edition was clocked up during April 1963. The last edition was on September 1st 1964.
Among the programmes with a special content noted in The Viewer were
June 9th 1960: the gang visit Haltwhistle, Wacky Jacky becomes Our Man In Haltwhistle.
Aug 25th 1960: Kate and Theodore are away in London. The rest of the gang present a beach show, Larry's conjuring goes well until Wacky Jacky gives some help.
Jan 25th 1961: The gang's shop is burgled, detective Wacky Jacky investigates. Script: Bob Hedley

At the Golden Disc (1959) was TTT's talent show, in charge was that fine producer Philip Jones. With Tony Martell of the auditions department, he scoured the area for amateur talent. Two discoveries who went on to make tv appearances in other shows were Don Crockett, and David MacBeth, who appeared here as David North.

The Derek Dene Show was a series that began on April 21st 1964. Script: Brad Ashton. Producer: Malcolm Morris.

Petrushka
(March 28th 1960, 10.30-11pm)

With Keith Beckett in the title role, Patricia Kirschner as The Ballerina, Rodney MacDonald as The Blackamoor, Malcolm Goddard as The Charlatan, and John Massey as The Devil.
"The best programme I have ever seen on Channel Eight," declared TE Bergman, "and among the best ballet productions televised on any channel." Whether most locals would have agreed with this verdict is another matter.
He admired the camera work, sound mixing and staging, "thoroughly professional and artistically inspired."
"The dancers, musicians, technicians and producer, Peter Glover, deserve a television award." He added, as it was not fully networked, "it would be a great pity if this production does not get a wider showing."
TTT were brave enough to repeat the programme at the end of 1960, proving that it was at one stage on tape. Where could it have gone to?

The plan had been to feature in The Big Show at 7pm Newcastle-born star Bill Travers, Bill Maynard, Eve Boswell, best known Tyneside comedian Bobby Thompson with special guest Dickie Henderson. The show wasn't networked, which was just as well!... Dickie Henderson had the flu with the result that Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna had to do their sketch without Dickie.
TE Bergman wrote of the "somewhat disappointing" show: "Jimmy James took over Dickie's comedy spot and arrived at the studio only six minutes before his 'on' cue, having been delayed by snow drifts. Despite all the handicaps, everybody battled on regardless demonstrating the determination that 'the show must go on'. Notable success was George Black's singing discovery Eileen Brennan, a girl with a considerable range of voice, excellent delivery and vivacious personality. A hectic but good time was had by all."

290,000 sets were able to pick up the first day's programmes from the Burnhope transmitter on its Opening Day, January 15th 1959.

At the start of 1958, Tyne Tees Television had promised 20% of its output would be locally made. Peter Cadbury announced "new programmes for young people" citing authors Eric Ambler and Emlyn Williams as possible contributors. He also suggested there would be "a teenage programme about careers," and a fascinating one in which "angry young men of the North-East can question those in authority"- why aye man. The only programme that even approximates to this was Hi There, described as "the only teenage magazine on the network." Perhaps TTT's most ambitious concept was "a North country serial story in dialect." Was that Supergran?!

Notes - Two locally produced programmes appear, including a local variety show. Evidence that the influence of George Black was being felt. But these local programmes were not shown in other regions. The difficulties of networking are clearly evident here.

Hi There!
"The first ever British teenage advertising magazine."
Presented by Maureen Beck and Gillian Gile with Dennis Kirkland, monthly on Saturdays at 6.15pm.
The half hourly programme was scheduled on these Saturdays: October 24th 1959, November 21st, December 12th, January 11th 1960, February 13th, and March 12th.
Peter Paine, TTT sales director, stated, "there is a great market in the north east, and the content, programme location and filming of Hi There! will achieve the tremendously valuable factor of a selective audience of teenagers."
Originally Jo Douglas had been booked to present the series, but it is not known if she was actually involved in any of these admags.

Eskimo Frozen Foods
This 1960 photo shows the Tyne Tees TV mobile Ampex unit making one of six 30 second commercials for Eskimo. Interviews with local housewives were taped, then rushed to the Newcastle studios. TTTV were the first company to make such commercials.
Free samples of Eskimo frozen foods were given out to women, who also had the chance to enter a competition offering 100 of kitchen equipment. Producer Malcolm Morris is seen with the interviewer John Braban
