The music for each series was provided by The Stranglers, their hits Waltzin Black and Peaches opening and closing each episode. The association came about because Hugh Cornwell, the band's guitarist and vocalist, used to play guitar as a student at Floyd's Bristol restaurant.
I was a big fan of Keith Floyd, who sadly passed away in 2009. In this day and age of wall to wall cookery programmes on TV it is quite a relief to see these repeats, hosted by a real character, never far away from a glass of wine and not relying on being foul mouthed or obnoxious like most chefs appear to be these days. Apart from The Hairy Bikers, Nigella Lawson and Mary Berry, Keith Floyd still remains the only cook worth watching.
