John Teather, Editor, BBC Weather Centre in the 80s and 90s, recently died.  A former colleague, Richard Chapman has written

‘He was (however) a leader, a charmer and a challenger of the “norm” and UK broadcast meteorology was put on the world stage by him over several decades’.

This picture was posted by Richard on social media and shows John with the BBC Weather team in the 90’s.  John is front row second left.

John was in charge of changing the presentation of TV weather from magnetic boards to a digital computer system.  This link will take you to a film called ‘A Change in the Weather’ made in 1985 about the history of TV weather and the transition to a computer system.
