Goodbye, Tony Hart

Here's Tony Hart's obituary at the BBC.


I used to love watching his programmes with my sister. We would always have tea and biscuits after school and watch Children's BBC before homework. Thousands of British children will have grown up watching him show us how to be creative. Rather like watching cookery programmes, most of us probably never tried out what he was teaching us to do, but it was always fun to watch.


Amazing to think he served with the Ghurkhas.


I wonder if, in the age of on-demand TV, DVDs and internet downloads, there's a place for the Tony Harts of the future?


I can't get to YouTube at the moment, as I'm in Riyadh, but I will find a choice episode of Morse to link to in a future post.

"Thousands of British children"? Many millions, I would think.

Amazing how many famous TV faces and voices we've lost in January alone: Oliver Postgate, John Mortimer, Bernie Hamilton, David Vine, Ricardo Montalban, Patrick McGoohan, and now Tony Hart.
