:"This article is about the television series; for information about the composition by Benjamin Britten, see The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra."

The classical TV series "Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra" was created by famed world-renowned orchestra conductor Leonard Bernstein, in 1960. Bernstein created the show for the purpose of exposing young viewers, mainly school-aged children, not just to European classical music, but to various kinds of orchestral instruments as well. It was a weekly show on CBS, and then PBS picked up the show in 1972.
