60s TV Themes
Music by various artists
Silva Screen SILED 4513
18 Tracks 45:22 mins

The third new compilation to be issued by Silva Screen features the City of Prague Philharmonic, The Royal Philharmonic and London Music Works performing favourite '60s TV themes, mainly from US shows, though Doctor Who, Dangerman, Please Sir!, Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased), The Magic Roundabout, Thunderbirds, and the "Yakety Sax" chase theme used in the Benny Hill Show are also included.
Other popular themes include Batman, Bewitched, Get Smart, I Dream of Jeannie, Ironside, Mission:Impossible, Star Trek, the Addams Family, Top Cat, The Jetsons, and The Flintstones.
It's a real nostalgia trip for those of us who grew up in the '60s, although many of these themes will be familiar to modern-day audiences, thanks to re-runs and DVD box sets.
The album is already on release in the UK, and goes Stateside on 4th May. Go to for samples and to download your copy.
