Find out about Vision On
Tony Hart rose to international fame with 'Vision On'. It ran for over ten years and spawned a myriad of talent that is still with us today.
Many of its contributors and viewers went on to become film makers, performers and artists in their own right - in fact nothing has surpassed 'Vision On' for such a wealth of talent and brilliant ideas in a 25 minute format, and perhaps more importantly it was the only series ever to attract audiences of both hearing and non-hearing viewers (for which it was intended)..
"Vision On" ran here in the UK from 1964 to 1976 on BBC 1 (after taking over from "For Deaf Children") usually on Weds or Thurs around 4.00pm on British Television. Made at BBC Bristol, it was broadcast in many other countries throughout the world, most notably Canada (Welcome to those browsing from outside the UK!!!) and France. More Canadian Childrens TV .
