In no particular order


Peter Gunn (never saw any of the series, might have felt let down if I did, but a great theme)


Who Pays the Ferryman?


The Onedin Line theme.


Then there's the Avengers, Dr Who, the Prisoner, Bonanza...........

Inspector Morse. 


Miami Vice, and quite a lot more of those already mentioned.


And does anyone remember an ITV science magazine programme from the early 80s with a Vangelis theme?  My memory won't recover the title but I can remember loving the theme music.

So sad to hear about Honor Blackman (leather clad Cathy Gale, original Avenger lady) a few days ago. 
Perhaps it shouldn't be a memorable TV theme, but  ...  Batman.  Zap! Pow!! Splatt!!!

It was a sort of Tomorrow's World/Horizon type programme and it might have only been on Central TV.  Curse this failing memory!!

No, it was a factual programme.  No worries, don't want to hijack the thread.

Just been listening to a few TV themes- Red Dwarf, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, and The Man from UNCLE have to be added into my list some how! %)
