That bloke was Tony Hart - hence the programme name Hartbeat.

Was that not TakeHart?
Heartbeat was a 60's police programme with Nick Berry:thumbsup:

lol yes Take Hart. Before that, he was on the much more brilliant Vision On, a kids art programme.

dont make them like they used to

Poor old fella is in a right state now too sadly, can't use his hands so can't do any art anymore. Shame for someone as clearly passionate about it as he was to have their ability taken from them.

Good product however, if a tad expensive. Hot, for Mr. Hart.

very sad to hear that, he was a good childrens presenter, these day we have presenters that try too hard to act "cool" and "trendy".

There does seem to be a lack of those who had a genuine contagious passion for what they were imparting to us kids of the time. Johnny Ball and Wilf Lunn to name others. They're all T4-alikes now with either irritating forced 'wackiness' or general smugness. Hull in a handbag, that's where we're going.

Not cheap, but VERY cool, so worth the wedge! Voted hot from me!

saddened to hear of his health problems....

Got to agree that all kids programmes appear to be more destructive rather than creative....it all seems fast paced animation now such as ben10 defeating some morphing monster.

I wish we could go back to when kids were happy just to draw or even colour a picture, even my 7 year old dosent colour in any more too busy playing computer/console games. If these are removed, he soon becomes bored.

just heard that Tony Hart has passed away....

saddened at his passing, but fondly remembered.
