What other shows do you remember that have banging, inspirational and downright great theme tunes?

Yeah, they only did 2 series covering the first two books and never did the third - I put a link up in the Obscure TV shows thread if ya fancy watching it online.

With the success of Dr Who, maybe they should consider re-commisioning it.

Avenues and Alleyways - think it was the theme tune to a show with Robert Vaughn - possibly called "The Protectors". Sung by the great Tony Christie, of "Amarillo" fame.

Quality never goes out of fashion. Sadly, fashion does go out of fashion so close your eyes to avoid being turned to stone by Tony's gorgonesque shirt and listen to this.

I did warn you to close your eyes while you were watching it.

A much better, and intentionally cheesy video is shown below. See how many 60s and 70s references you can spot.

Pentangle did a version of Light Flight for the short lived series Take Three Girls:

Always like the Hammond organ in the World In Action intro, very spooky:
