10 of the Best 1960s TV Themes

The 1960s was an era not only of classic TV series, but also of classic TV theme tunes. No TV show of the era was complete without a catchy theme tune and, preferably, a memorable credits sequence too. The decade saw the western series dominant in the US and the historical adventures previously popular in the UK give way to other genres, including sci-fi and, especially, secret agent series.  Here are 10 of the best TV themes of the era, from both sides of the Atlantic. These videos are all hosted on Youtube and videos are always being removed from there. So let me know if any of these are removed or if they aren't available in your country.

Book Review: National Heroes - British Cinema in the Seventies and Eighties, by Alexander Walker

National Heroes: British Cinema in the Seventies and Eighties  - also published as  National Heroes: The British Film Industry in the Seventies and Eighties -  is the second book in Alexander Walker's trilogy exploring British cinema from the 1960s to the turn of the millennium. The first book, Hollywood England , looked at the 1960s and the very beginning of the 1970s. National Heroes overlaps with that book a little, beginning in 1971 and ending in 1984.
