Graham was employed by the Met Office (1951 – 1992) and his postings included: Heathrow Airport, the London Weather Centre and the RAF in Scotland, Malta and Gibralter. He was a BBC TV weather presenter (1963 – January 1974) and he also presented forecasts on BBC Radio (1962 – 1974). He was the BBC One Christmas Day weather presenter in 1972 (no information is available for the period 1963 – 1966).
His TV memories included working with the in-vision announcers Judith Chalmers and Valerie Singleton, and the strange look he got from a fellow passenger when he boarded a bus, as he had forgotten to remove his TV makeup and hairspray.
He joined former colleagues on Nationwide to celebrate the 25th anniversary of BBC TV Weather in January 1979, in which Bob Wellings interviewed past and present weather forecasters. He also joined a get-together for BBC TV Weather’s 40th anniversary in January 1994. He was appointed manager of Norwich Weather Centre in 1984 and later appeared for a number of years as BBC Norwich’s weather presenter on Look East.
