Chart positions

This show was 3rd in the global soundtrack chart.

A musical collage to reflect the influence of the cathode ray wet nurse that was TV from the 60's through to the 80's in all it's Folk Horror/Sci-Fi wyrdness. These were the programmes and their themes tunes that had a profound effect on a generation and sowed the seeds for the music of the hauntology scene and shaped the minds of those behind all things retro-futuristic.
The next programme will begin after tonights visit to Newsround - do not touch that dial and don't forget to wash your hands before tea!!



Shadows Of Fear by Roger Webb is such a brilliant piece of creepy music. I enjoyed all the others too - thank you for uploading!


Was Shadows of Fear ever released on a library LP?

Crown Court! I would never have got that - but no wonder it dredged up memories of skiving school.


I tried my best to wake up those long forgotten memories and it is amazing how different some of these tracks become when taken away from a title sequence and mixed together. The one that works the best in that way was the Midsomer Murders Theme - a waltz on a Theremin with saw accompaniment….what’s not to love about that!?

I found it was Picture Box by reading the comments - I really should have thought of that earlier.
However, 22.40 isn't 'Shadows of Fear' - it's the flutey one - very pastoral, early Sunday evening feel.
Absolutely love your stuff by the way - perfect accompaniment/antidote to making corporate videos!


It's `Distant Hills' by Simon Park Orchestra which was the theme to Crown Court...sorry Shadows of Fear is at 20.40 - my mistake!
I am glad my mixes are finding another welcome harbour - you can find out more here!/Melmoth-The-Wanderer-277345965761781/

Thought it tagged at time - I mean at 22.40 and the one at 08.01.


8.01 is Maneche by Jacques Lasry which was the theme for the ITV childrens show `Picture Box' and 22.40 is the theme tune to 70's anthology series `Shadows of Fear'

What theme is this? It's in my memory but can't identify it...


Great mix, nostalgia overload for my wet summer holidays of 1979 when I saw Kites and Planes. You might like this one I made back in 2009 -
