Looking and Seeing was the very first schools’ television programme to be broadcast in Britain. It was a hastily conceived, experimental series on the subjects of art and science, and resulted from the initiative of Paul Adorian, the Managing Director of Associated-Rediffusion.

It aimed to encourage children to look more attentively at the art, architecture and natural beauty around them. Eighty schools were involved in the initial broadcast.
