Theme Time : Denton and Cook

Richard Denton and Martin Cook were a duo responsible for some truly great TV theme tunes in the 70s and 80s. Last night whilst watching BBC4's weekly repeat of the 1978 series of Top Of The Pops I saw featured their theme for the documentary series Hong Kong Beat which had entered the charts. It's a great tune, full of atmosphere and so very 70s...

Hong Kong Beat, 1978

Spurred by this, I've decided to shed some light on the great and often under appreciated composers and theme tunes on this blog, in a similar fashion to how I do Out On Blue Six, the music feature. So to start us of, here's a couple more of Denton and Cook's....

Quiller, 1975

Tomorrow's World, 1980
