Vision On - Pat Keysell & Tony Hart

'Vision On' was one of the most innovative programmes ever seen on children's television and ran for over ten years. Made at BBC Bristol, it was the first programme to successfully bridge the gap between children with hearing and those with limited hearing. It broke new ground in entertainment programmes and used very little dialogue which meant it sold well overseas. It also saw the emergence of 'The Gallery' that was to continue in all of Hart's subsequent series.

'Vision On' won prestigious awards as well as making Tony Hart and Pat Keysell international stars. The series is not available on DVD although much of the series is said to preserved in the BBC archives and there are a handful of episodes (around 7) that surface from time to time Cheap iPad 3 Cases amongst fans.
