RIP Tony Hart

No, this isn't Tony Hart, it's his creation, the ubiquitous Morph.
Yet another sad passing, following Oliver Postgate, of a children's TV legend: Tony Hart died today, aged 83. A familiar face on telly throughout my childhood, Hart was a gifted artist and communicator who introduced a generation of kids to arts and crafts with his shows Vision On and Take Hart. He will be greatly missed by those he inspired to pick up a pencil or brush and say "I can do that..."

Soundtrack: Left Bank 2 by The Noveltones ( the Vision On Gallery theme ).
