Launched in February 1974, children's show Spot On mixed educational content and entertainment. Among those invited to join the team of presenters over the show's 14 year run were The Amazing Race's Phil Keoghan, CGI animation maestro Ian Taylor and director Peta Carey. Spot On's annual filmmaking contest attracted entries from emerging talents like Peter Jackson and Robert Sarkies. The award-winning show was created by Murray Hutchinson. Producer Michael Stedman later became head of the Natural History Unit.
