One of the greatest anthology series of them all, Tales Of The Unexpected ran from 1979 to 1988 and was made by Anglia Television.
The first two series were largely based on adaptations of Roald Dahl short stories with subsequent programmes focusing on works from other authors.
Ron Grainer's wonderful theme tune accompanied an unforgettable title sequence and lasted for all nine series.

Beyond brilliant, The Sweeney ran for four series between 1975 and 1978 (following a 1974 pilot called Regan).
It paired John Thaw with Dennis Waterman as two no-nonsense 'ard detectives.
The violence was realistic and both leads were far from being perfect.
That made it even more enjoyable.
The theme tune was composed by Harry South.
This is his extended re-recording with some fantastic mid-section guitar playing.

Shoestring is a fondly remembered BBC series from 1979 / 1980. It starred Trevor Eve in the leading role as a private detective cum radio presenter. It ran for 21 episodes before Eve decided that the theatre beckoned. The producers decided to re-locate the programme to Jersey and call it Bergerac.
George Fenton composed and performed the memorable theme tune.
