    The best ever TV theme music can be heard on The Normal Bates Memorial Soundtrack Show with Robert Emmett, Saturday mornings on KFJC in Los Altos Hills, (CA) from 9 to noon.89.7 on the FM dial, and streaming on KFJC.org.

    The Theme Song from the show
    St. Elsewhere.

    Possibly the best series finale as well
    The show always opened with an outside view of the hospital
    One of the characters was the head doctor who had an autistic son

    The show ended with that same doctor being a factory worker.
    His son was staring at a snow globe containing the same building and his father stating that his son spent hours staring at the globe, thinking and imagining things.

    In the US, Rob Reiner is a consummate wizard of TV themes. I worked on "Stand By Me" that he directed in northern California and most every night the crew would jam in the bar of the hotel with various instruments. I played my harmonica. Rob would often attend and lead the group in a variety of theme songs.

    Star Trek Voyager. In addition to being a lovely piece of music, it's accompanied by an opening sequence that is visually breathtaking.

    I had to post the opening sequence here. Check out all the people who worked on this show before they became famous.
