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.

Comments and feedback are welcome.
