BBC’s Countryfile

Sean Fletcher and Helen Skelton explored Tees Valley in an hour long episode about the region. The episode featured the lower reaches of the River Tees where the industrial landscape meets green and fertile countryside and focuses on how Tees Barrage is improving wildlife at the mouth of the River Tees.

Helen also drops in at the Tees Barrage International White Water Centre and explains to viewers about how the white water course is powered by four giant Archimedes screws which pump water around the course turning it into a thrill-seekers’ paradise.

The feature then moves on to discuss the world-class facility that has given young people in the area the opportunity to compete at international level and Helen meets four young hopefuls planning to one day make it to the Olympics.
