The much loved Tony Hart – and artist on television shows such as Vision On, Playbox, Take Hart and Hartbeat, this man was God as far as I was concerned

Loved this programme as a child, the programme was part of a BBC children's television series titled Watch with Mother, with a different programme each weekday, most of them involving string puppets. The Flower Pot Men was the story of two little men made of flower pots who lived at the bottom of an English suburban garden. The characters were devised by Freda Lingstrom and Maria Bird.
