Take Hart was a British children's television show about art, fronted by Tony Hart. It took over from Vision On, and ran from 1978 until 1984. The show featured Hart and the animated plasticine character Morph. The programme won a BAFTA award for Hart in 1984.
As well as demonstrating small-scale projects (the type that viewers might be able to do), Hart also created large-scale artworks on the TV studio floor, and even used beaches and other open spaces as 'canvases' (to be viewed from a camera-crane).
A regular feature of the show was 'The Gallery', which displayed artworks sent in by young viewers. The easy-listening vibraphone music accompanying this feature - 'Left Bank', by Wayne Hill - has passed into British TV theme lore.
