The 60s vibe continues with today's theme-y themester and, really, there was no way I was going to let the week go by without a certain TV tune turning up. So, who have we got today?
The king of 60s British themes, he gave three real belters. First up is this iconic piece from a series which couldn't be any more 60s if it tried. Here goes:-
But he didn't just go for your strange, weird and offbeat sci-fi/fantasy style series. He was capable of knocking out some pure comedy sitcom themes, too.
However, the greatest of them all has to be this theme - one that has been reworked many, many times over the last 46 years and is still going strong today...
Credit Where Credit's Due Dept. :- In all fairness, this theme isn't entirely Grainer's creation. While he may have come up with the basic tune, it was a young lady from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop who came up with the arrangement and the razor-blades-down-piano-wire noise that makes up the haunting theme. Her part was unfairly overlooked for many years but, in recent years and fortunately before her death, she received a lot more recognition for her work.
The week's not over yet. Any bets on who else we've got coming up?
