Tony Hart RIP
« on: January 18, 2009, 04:52:20 PM »

Tony Hart (Vision On) passed away earlier today.. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7836112.stm

He inspired many generations with his 'art' programmes.

How many remember 'Morph'?.

Vision On, Take Hart. Watched them all as a kid (and with my kids) and loved them.  :-) A brilliant guy.

Used to watch him on the TV when I was growing up. Am I the only person to think he looked a little like Benny Hill?

He must have inspired the creative urge in millions and to think he did it on a TV program designed for deaf people, which a high percentage of the rest didn't even realise!

Ufortunately no-one has really taken his place and we remain short of people to inspire that creative spark nowadays.  I have always held Tony Hart in the same high regard as Johnny Morris and early Blue Peter with Chris Trace, Valerey Singleton and John Noakes, all a big part of my own childhood.

R.I.P

I even sent a picture to the show when I was about 6 years old.

What an inspiration. Who would have thought art could be made entertaining, let alone a TV program.
