Mine is (Jam For) World In Action. A very powerful and thought-provoking piece that suited the nature of the programme perfectly.

I quite liked Barnacle Bill from Blue Peter before the Mike Oldfield arrangement displaced it. A pleasant, jolly hockey sticks kind of number.

Ha, that’s The Bridge theme, but not the right pictures- still, we’re talking music.

I also liked World in Action theme and still have shameful soft spot for the Bergerac theme.

Sopranos or the wire, probably series 4 for the wire. Or one. They're all good smile

@rogerthatoverout oh my god that reminds me when I used to watch this when I was about 3. I used to sob at the end of each episode when he went away. My mum had to stop me watching it in the end because I would be inconsolable grin

Oh and Sharky and George! Crime busters of the sea!

Can’t listen to The Littlest Hobo music, I find it really upsetting.
