Forget the show, which never grabbed me as a kid, but that theme tune. The haunting sounds of folkies The Settlers singing The Lightning Tree (a symbol of the show) is my favourite TV theme. It took me ages to find the record, but since I did it's never been off my turntable. Time someone sampled it really - I put it on a tape and brought it into work and everyone was entranced by it. Best theme tune of all time? You decide.
