TV 023: Catweazle (Busy Boy) - Ted Dicks


How cool was this?
An eccentric 11th century wizard transported to the Britain of 1969 / 1970.

Two series were made; in the first Catweazle's mission was to get back to his own time while the second saw him attempt to solve a 12 part puzzle.

Geoffrey Balydon excelled in the title role and is thankfully still with us. Ted Dicks composed the melodic and immediate theme tune.

TV 022: Captain Scarlet - Barry Gray Orchestra


One of my earliest cult television memories, Captain Scarlet was a fascinating early addition to the UK's science fiction programming canon.

The Mysterons sent shivers up my spine when I viewed early 1980s re-runs on RTE. Even now, the series still holds a dark edge and is Anderson's finest supermarionation effort. The ruthless attacks by the Mysterons were realistic and sometimes very bleak in their nihilism.

Barry Gray's theme tune is instantly recognisable and just swings for the entire duration.
Once again, a television show makes me nostalgic for a time before I was born.

Indestructable, indestructable...

TV 021: Campion - The London Film Orchestra Conducted By Nigel Hess


Campion, based on the novels by Margery Allingham, was adapted by the BBC in 1989 and 1990 and starred Peter Davison in the leading role.

The 1930s setting is vividly portrayed and the cast is second to none with Brian Glover and Andrew Burt ably assisting the dapper sleuth.

The theme that I'm sharing is the instrumental version that was used for the second series. It's a whimsical piece that goes well with the subject matter and period in question.

TV 020: Budgie (The Loner) - Nick Harrison


Nice but dim.
That was Budgie, a likeable petty criminal, played to perfection by Adam Faith for two series in the early 1970s.

His mentor was the hectoring and bumptious Charlie Endell (Iain Cuthbertson giving it socks) while his long-suffering (what other type is there?) girlfriend Hazel (Lynn Dalby) provided suitable eye candy and a dose of realism for some of Budgie's far-fetched business ideas.

God, this one really made me laugh. Especially the dodgy mags smouldering on the football pitch and the blue movie that turned out to be slapstick in the form of "Lorne 'n 'Ardy".

The theme tune is taken from the Standard library and was composed by Nick Harrison. It was replaced by a much less memorable effort for the second series.

TV 019: Bread (Home) - Dave Mackay


Carla Lane was the writer behind Bread, a likeable sitcom that ran from 1986 to 1991.

The programme centred around a Liverpool family called the Boswells who were perpetually "living on their wits". Their escapades were funny and often raised a laugh but belied the darker strain that lay beneath - how difficult it was for a working class family to survive in Thatcher's Britain.

Carla Lane was interviewed on Brass Eye in 1997 and came across as entirely humourless - not a fair reflection on her, I think.

The upbeat and catchy theme was written and performed by Dave Mackay.

TV 018: Blott On The Landscape - Dave Mackay


Blott On The Landscape was dramatised in 1985, some ten years after the publication of Tom Sharpe's novel of the same name.

The plot centres around the controversial construction of a motorway through a rural gorge upon which is built a stately home - Handyman Hall.

For: Lord Lynchwood (George Cole)
Against: Lady Lynchwood (Geraldine James) and their gardener Blott (David Suchet)

Being a Tom Sharpe adaptation, the emphasis is on outlandish fun and hilarious farce. The theme suits the general vibe of the story and is performed by Dave Mackay.

TV 017: Blake's 7 - Dudley Simpson


Blake's 7 was one of the earliest series shown on RTE's second channel - RTE 2 - back in early 1979. It was a fascinating futuristic series with a bleak outlook.

Gareth Thomas played the part of a Roj Blake, an idealistic troublemaker who escapes from the remote penal colony Cygnus Alpha. He is ably assisted by a thief, a murderer, a fraudster, a smuggler, a telepathic guerrilla fighter and Zen, the master computer.

A dystopian masterpiece which is just as relevant today.

Dudley Simpson (who had previously worked on Doctor Who for many years) composed the memorable theme.

TV 016: Bird Of Prey - Dave Greenslade

When this originally aired - 1982 - I thought it was one of the coldest programmes ever.
Time has not changed my opinion.

Bird Of Prey stars Richard Griffiths as a civil servant who unwittingly stumbles into a combination of rogue intelligence, espionage and conspiracy. While the series makes for exciting viewing, the general harshness and unfeeling nature of the majority of the cast make for extremely uncomfortable viewing.

Life is cheap seems to be the selfish mantra here.

The theme was composed by Dave Greenslade and aptly complements the computer / electronics setting.

TV 015: The Big Match (La Soiree) - David Ordini


The Big Match was originally a Sunday afternoon staple whereas the BBC would show football highlights on Match of The Day the previous night. It started broadcasting in 1968 but by 1980 had won over the Saturday night slot for alternate seasons.

Brian Moore and Jim Rosenthal were the presenters that I remember best. Avuncular, knowledgeable and a joy to watch.

The theme tune had a number of incarnations. This one, by David Ordini, was used from 1974 to 1980. It's easily the best of the five with a jaunty feel that really set viewers in the mood for some top class action.

TV 014: Big Deal - Bobby G

Big Deal was an likeable comedy drama about a chronic gambler (Ray Brooks) and his long-suffering girlfriend (Sharon Duce).

It ran from 1984 to 1986 and still holds up well today. The poker scenes are well acted, if somewhat unrealistic in the hands that are dealt, while the theme of gambling as an illness is depicted with sensitivity.

The theme tune makes me nostalgic for those early teenage years - watching this on Sunday nights with the prospect of school looming the following day.
It's sung by Bobby Guppy of Buck's Fizz fame.

TV 013: Bergerac - George Fenton


Bergerac, a gripping crime series that ran for ten years, was based in the unusual setting of Jersey.

Jim Bergerac, played by John Nettles, was an unorthodox and flawed detective sergeant with a penchant for booze and a clatter of girlfriends. My preference is for the early years (1981 to 1983 or so) where the fantasy element was largely absent.

The theme tune has a lilting Gallic flavour and was composed by George Fenton. It is instantly recognisable and very evocative of its surroundings.

Comments and feedback are welcome.

TV 012: The Beiderbecke Connection (Cryin' All Day) - The Frank Ricotti All Stars


Originally broadcast as 1988 drew to a close, The Beiderbecke Connection was the third and final part of Alan Plater's comedy-thriller trilogy. Once again we were treated to a wonderfully wry and intriguing series with enthralling plot diversions and a fine musical score.

Cryin' All Day was chose to play over the closing credits and is an authentically melodic slice of vintage jazz.

TV 011: BBC Wimbledon (Light And Tuneful) - Keith Mansfield


Originally composed in 1974, Light And Tuneful is, as its title suggests, a perfectly succinct and apt theme for those hot (and sometimes rainy) June afternoons.

Keith Mansfield is a KPM heavyweight who also composed the Grandstand theme and recorded one the best lounge LPs of the 1960s - All You Need Is Keith Mansfield.

TV 009: The Avengers - Laurie Johnson


A series which has stood the test of time and will never lose its allure.

The Avengers spanned the decade, commencing in 1961 and signing off eight years later. During that time special agent John Steed was the true constant - played by Patrick Macnee. He had a variety of female co-stars - Cathy Gale (Honor Blackman), Emma Peel (Diana Rigg) and Tara King (Linda Thorson).

While John Dankworth composed the theme for series 1 to 3, it is Laurie Johnson's version (which was first heard in 1965 when Emma Peel came on board) that is most memorable.

Extraordinary crimes against the people, and the state, have to be avenged by agents extraordinary. Two such people are John Steed, top professional, and his partner Emma Peel, talented amateur. Otherwise known as The Avengers.

TV 008: Auf Wiedersehen, Pet (Back With The Boys Again) - Joe Fagin


The second series of Auf Wiedersehen, Pet saw the action move from Germany to England and Spain. It was originally broadcast in 1986.

The magnificent seven returned but sadly Gary Holton (who played Wayne) died while filming was still in progress.

Back With The Boys Again was now chosen to play over the closing credits. It was another hard-rocking and stirring tune from Joe Fagin.
It took on a poignancy of its own when the viewer realised that Wayne's enforced absences were due to his untimely demise and the sentiments expressed in the song could never be realised again.

TV 007: Auf Wiedersehen, Pet (That's Livin' Alright) - Joe Fagin


Series 1 of this fondly-remembered series was set in Germany.
It was 1983 and Britain was in the throes of unemployment, presided over by the Queen of Misrule a.k.a. Margaret Thatcher.

Seven lads took the ferry to ply their respective trades in a German building site where much laughter (and a little sobering sadness) ensued. A tightly-knit cast with each member being uniquely talented made for a most enjoyable 13 weeks' viewing.

The closing credits played out to this uptempo and bittersweet track from Joe Fagin. He also sung the opening tune called Breakin' Away.

That's Livin' Alright also featured on the second volume of Now That's What I Call Music.
For years the lyrics puzzled me - "taking snapshots of fun" was actually "drinking schnaps in the sun".

The song perfectly encapsulates the lifestyle for an emigrant brickie.
Work, boozing, ladies, sleep.

TV 006: Ask The Family (Sun Ride) - John Leach


Ask The Family initially ran from 1967 to 1984. As the title suggests, it was a quiz show for all the family presided over by the inimitable Robert Robinson. Suitable questions were directed at different members ("father to answer", "children's round" etc) and there was also an emphasis on photographic queries.

It was subsequently revived in 1999 and again in 2005 but the old magic and wholesome formula were not recaptured.

The theme tune changed over the years with John Leach's Sun Ride taking the mantle at the end of the initial run and also for the first revival. A memorable, if somewhat brief, composition from the Chappell library.

TV 005: Animal Magic (Las Vegas) - Laurie Johnson


Animal Magic was a staple on BBC 1 for over 20 years, finally coming to a halt in 1983.

Well-loved Johnny Morris was the head honcho, a man who played with animals and did some great voiceovers. The programme was interesting for children as it gave the animals a more human personality and helped us understand them a little better.

The theme tune entitled Las Vegas was written by Laurie Johnson back in 1962 and lasted for the entire run.

TV 004: Angels (Motivation) - Alan Parker


Angels was a fascinating medical soap with a difference - it concentrated on the nurses as opposed to the doctors.

It started airing in the mid 1970s and lasted until 1983. Along the way it tackled a number of gritty issues and was somewhat uncompromising in its portrayal of the challenges facing student nurses.

The theme tune, Motivation, comes from KPM and was composed by Alan Parker.
Its hard-hitting and driving guitar seems appropriate for the programme.

TV 003: All Creatures Great And Small (Piano Parchment) - Johnny Pearson


A series perfect for Sunday evenings.

Carol Drinkwater was the obvious attraction but the stories were life-affirming and funny.
Especially the one about "Mr Bloomfield".

And sad when the occasion demanded it. Remember James going off to war?
Big steps and little 'uns.

Johnny Pearson composed a lovely relaxing theme that takes me back to those Sunday evenings every time I hear it. Simpler times - both the 1930s and the late 1970s/early 1980s.
