This engaging children's television series, with signing for the deaf, involves a creative group consisting of a woman and two men who can turn paint splashed on a wall into coherent images of art and who always manage to invent ingenious gadgets or conceive fun games for themselves - often with limited resources. The logo of the series is its handwritten title, casting a 180-degree reflection and becoming a bug-eyed, hopping creature. Written by Kevin McCorry <>

Vision On Information:
6 January 2007 | by (Coventry, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Vision On ran from 1964 to 1976 under various directors and was broadcast in many countries. It made TV artist Tony Hart, an international star.

The format had minimum speech as it was primarily aimed at deaf children but instead played legendary jazz themes including 'Leftbank 2' which was used for the 'gallery' where viewers drawings and paintings were shown each week.

There were 260x30 minute episodes, a composite of ideas and people, backed by a very good production team. Ben Benison and legendary co-host Pat 'None of your pictures can be returned' Keysell, both worked with Tony Hart on the series as did Sylvester McCoy of Dr Who fame.

It won many prestigious awards (including a Bafta) and was a starting ground for those behind the now world famous Aardman Animations amongst others. It also starred David Cleveland (better known as 'The Prof') and the famous 'Suzanne & Humphrey'. Humphrey was a tortoise and is the main reason why even today, many tortoises go by this name.

It also has a fan site of its own which documents the history and those behind Vision On. More information can be found on Tony Hart's own website.
