TV 070: The Newcomers (Happy Dance) - John Barry
The Newcomers was a BBC soap opera that ran for four years until November 1969. Conceived as a rival to Coronation Street, it never really threatened the ITV behemoth and now remains largely forgotten - not helped by its "missing, believed wiped - aside from three episodes" status.
John Barry's theme tune is a groovy beast that sounds more suited to a spy movie.
Comments and feedback are welcome.
