Accent on Youth was an Australian television series which aired in 1958, from 25 January 1958 to around October of that year on Sydney station TCN-9. It evolved into a new series titled Bandstand,[1] which debuted shortly after Accent on Youth ended. Originally presented by John Godson, it quickly acquired Brian Henderson as new host. A music series aimed at teenagers, it evolved from the earlier TV Disc Jockey series. Broadcast on Saturdays, it was originally a 30-minute show aired at 6:00PM, later moved to 2:30PM and expanded to an hour at 2:00PM.

It should not be confused with Accent on Strings, a short-lived TCN series which aired during the last two months of 1956.
