Carolyn Ross, Tony Hart's daughter, paints a fascinating and detailed picture of her father, one of the most loved men ever to have graced British television. Remembered by generations for his long-running programmes, including Take Hart and Hartbeat, Tony Hart was a firm fixture in children's television for over 30 years and inspired tens of thousands of young people to explore their creative talents. Following his death in January 2009, at the age of 83, a flashmob of tiny plasticine figures were placed on London's Bankside to honour the memory of the late TV artist. Almost 200 models in the shape of children's TV favourite Morph were arranged in a Terracotta Army-style formation outside Tate Modern. An inspirational figure to thousands of children from the 1970s until his retirement in 2001, Tony Hart is fondly remembered and this detailed biography will appeal to the readers of celebrity biographies as well as to those with an interest in art
