Theme Time : Jake Bugg - Happy Valley

One that's very much of the moment; indeed not only is it s relatively recent song, the programme itself is currently airing, in fact it's the must watch thing on TV at the moment. I'm talking of course of Happy Valley

Each Tuesday evening I'm floored by this drama; its boldness, unrelenting grimness and nailbiting brilliance. Set in the beautiful Calder Valley and its terraced sprawls its a thoroughly bleak punch to the gut affair of murder, rape, kidnap and ransom with something of a Coen brothers vibe. It features a sterling central performance from Sarah Lancashire and is written by Sally Wainwright (Scott and Bailey, Last Tango In Halifax, Unforgiven) The theme tune is Trouble Town by Jake Bugg
