Belle and Sebastian
You've got to be kidding me posting this. My brother and I have just been talking about how Robinson Crusoe keeps appearing in his life recently. Little things like his wife pointing out a sign in Norfolk on a building which had relevance to the book, him stumbling across a headstone in a Norfolk gaveyard with a similar connection. Then me a couple of days ago randomly pinging him this series as a childhood memory we both had. Now you post it on here. Very coincidental!
The last bit of the intro with the characters on screen - the theme goes all Hans Zimmer like.
I couldn't quite put my finger on what made Jonny Briggs so watchable as a kid, looking back it was basically Eastenders for kids, but only had kid-sized problems that we could relate to but to us it was always a big deal.
It was a turning point in the series, when **** got real and the theme reflected that. Still the best out of the 5 seasons themes by a long way.
Phew, I was beginning to wonder someone would post the actual best ever theme tune, saved me a job.
I'll add this one, up there with the best the 70's & 80's had to offer.
Let's face it, the 70's and 80's had a huge number of great TV series and great themes.
