Wasn't aware, thanks.There's a great YouTube channel called Auntie Corrie2 that collects a massive number of episodes reaching from 1960-1970, including the very first ones. In case anyone feels like celebrating in style.
I watched a programme on BBC4 at 9pm on Friday about TV theme tunes and this was on it, some other great British tv shows going back decades featured too, well worth checking out.Original theme tune.
All courtesy of Mr. Eric Spear (18 April 1908 – 3 November 1966) an English composer of film music most noted for writing the theme tune to the ITV soap opera Coronation Street.
God bless Eric.
