Brilliant opening sequence and theme music, a real shame so much was lost.
15 August 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I remember being a regular watcher of this series while working in Wolverhampton back in 1966 aged 20. The most memorable part of The Ratcatchers for me was the opening sequence and the theme music that I have tried many times over the years to get a copy of but without success. The story lines were fast paced and intelligent and all the violence was justified something sadly lacking with many modern television series. This being the UK prior to 1968 it was shown in black and white but this did not make it any the less a good television series and in my opinion, on a par with Adam Adamant Lives. It was very sad to hear that only two and a bit episodes are know to survive from the twenty five made. It would be really good news to have the missing episodes turn up in some forgotten archive.
