Well, I've come to realise I must have spent way way too much of my youth watching television (talk about double standards with my own sprogletts!!).

Anyway, I've always derived a lot of pleasure from those theme tunes, and the memories they still evoke in me today. I thought a "poll" of some of my faves + interest in which ones have a similiar effect on you guys.....

They really don't make 'em as good these days do they???

The Adventures of Black Beauty
Little House on the Prairie
The Persuaders
Doctor Who
Tales of the Unexpected
Top of the Pops
The Sweeney
Van Der Valk
F1 (The Chain)

Lots of memories in there Jed. I'll take the Persuaders, but could have gone F1, Sweeney or almost any. Happy days.

Pity I was limited to 10 for the purposes of the poll :eek:

Got to be The Chain. I can't hear that and not think of Murray Walker. We used to play that on the car stereo while blasting home from The British Grand Prix in the 80s.

I picked TOTP, as I'm a big Led Zep fan, but I was tempted to say The Chain - whenever that bassline starts up I ALWAYS drop a gear and give it some welly :D

Some great choices (and alternatives) guys!

As I said, this could easily have become one of those "100 Best...." type things were it not for the calming, if slightly sweaty hand of the forum tools limitation :p

The Avengers, Sopranos and Littlest Hobo (ahhhh....London) :eek: all rate highly.
I was trying not to go for the obvious pure children's theme tune stuff (hence no Fraggle Rock, R&C, Sesame Street etc).

Sorry if this was too UK/US based (this was all we had!!).

All nations welcome to share their childhood TV memories :D
