New Three-Part Series Tony Hatch As Heard On TV
In this new three-part series, Tony Hatch – who is no stranger to the TV theme tune having created the classics Emmerdale, Crossroads, Neighbours and Grandstand amongst many others – will bring the theme tune to the fore once more.
He’ll be finding out the secrets behind many of the most beloved ear worms by talking to some of the most prolific television composers responsible for bringing us these mini-musical masterpieces.
This week Tony will be joined by composer David Lowe who brought with him the tools of his trade and in the studio recreated the current BBC News theme and the ever popular The One Show. Plus, the man responsible for the other major Australian theme – Home and Away composer Mike Perjanik – compares notes with Tony on their soap themes, which have been on TV screens for an amazing 30 years. Radio 2 presenters Bob Harris and Anneka Rice reveal their favourite television theme tunes and why – with both of them choosing subjects quite close to their hearts.
