Theme Time : Ronnie Hazlehurst - Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em

Seeing as it's mother's day what better theme to share than the one from classic BBC sitcom Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em

The show was written by Raymond Allen and ran for 20 episodes between 1973 and 1978. Originally the BBC wanted Ronnie Barker or Norman Wisdom to play the show's hapless hero, the accident prone and ineffectual Frank Spencer, but Michael Crawford bagged the role and created something truly unique and special.

The theme tune was composed by the prolific Ronnie Hazlehurst, a veteran of British TV comedy theme tunes of the 1970s and 80s. The show's title is cleverly spelt out on the piccolo in Morse Code.
