    My faves are , from 1963 to : Z Cars, Dr Who, Thunderbirds, Iron Horse,Ivanhoe , Captain Scarlet, Pink Panther (Tele show), Captain Pugwash (Trumpet hornpipe) Blue Peter (sort of Sailor's Hornpipe) Alias Smith and Jones, Black Beauty, Old Ned (Steptoe and Son) and then it all goes a bit nothingy from the late 70s onward .The selection are from pre teen to late teen years, perhaps I stopped watching so much tele later on LOL I used to seek out albums like Geoff Love plays TV Themes and get extended versions of the tunes. Also film Theme tunes. But that's another subject LOL.

    The Prisoner opening titles, music written by Ron Grainer :-

    Ron Grainer was commissioned and was paid to write the Doctor Who theme but he merely wrote a note giving a 'mood' outline to Delia Derbyshire of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, went away and collected the finished work a couple of weeks later. First episode opening titles November 1963 :-

    The theme to "Family Guy". Claire and I always sing along. It's one of the most challenging tunes to strum on the ukulele too, and will be deeply satisfying if I can ever nail it so well that I can strum along whenever it comes on the telly.
