Welcome


Introducing you to Teeafit Sound & Vision, and Graeme Aldous.

'Teeafit' is the old East Cleveland dialect name for the Peewit (or Lapwing).

Graeme Aldous


Graeme Aldous qualified first as a Drama Teacher, but joined the BBC in 1968 as a Technical Operator in Belfast.
When BBC Local Radio began, he moved to East Cleveland to become a Producer/Presenter for BBC Radio Cleveland, where he stayed for 15 years. During this time he also worked for BBC TV in Newcastle as a Researcher/Director on a natural history series. He later was one of the presenters of the popular regional programme 'Townscape'.

He went freelance in 1985, setting up Teeafit Sound & Vision in an old granary at the farm he shares with his wife on the edge of the North York Moors. He is no longer working full time, but has no intention of retiring completely!

His clients ranged from 3M and BASF to Tioxide Europe and Vauxhall Motors. Prominent in recent years were safety inductions for Greenergy's plants across the UK. In 1994 "3 Gold Watches" — a commission from the Benefits Agency — earned an award from the Royal Television Society.

Passions include the rural life and scenic beauty of East Cleveland, the Moors and Coast; Sheepdogs and Land-Rovers.

He served for some years on the Committee of the North East & The Border Centre of the Royal Television Society, and is Vice-Chairman of Moorsholm Memorial Hall. Other memberships include the Land-Rover Series One Club, National Trust and Woodland Trust, for whom he wardens two local woods, and is a Volunteer Speaker.

He is a popular public speaker, with talks based on his DVD productions, and behind-the-scenes stories from a life both sides of the microphone and camera.
