Whether they’re memorable for all the right, or wrong, reasons, which television theme tunes are you thinking of right now?
For my own glee, here’s The Littlest Hobo, which was much better than Lassie in terms of both music and canine exploits. (Did you ever see Lassie carrying a gun?)
In terms of suitability, with its Halloween-esque piano, ‘sirens’ and ticking clock, I can’t think of anything better than 999, a programme about real-life accidents, rescues and reconstructions. It always sent me to bed on a Sunday night mentally rehearsing all possible escape routes, should the house catch fire.
Oh, and just how scary was the original Dr Who?
Just so that you know, I’m going to be pre-occupied for the next two weeks, so please don’t be alarmed if The Blog appears to be slightly temperamental during this time, or if it even closes temporarily at some point. It will take longer than usual for your comments to be published.
