To think we got that monstrosity for four years and BBC World got the finest iteration of the theme tune ever, imo...
Not only the finest theme tune but the sublime countdown and ident music. The Lowe music was never done better than this.
This is going to sound tragically sad but this version of the theme tune is my ringing tone on my mobile.
This is going to sound even more tragic but, whenever my phone rings, I don't pick up until the end of the theme tune, I love this version that much.
I was gutted when they got rid of the flags. It was like they were taking the piss when they replaced it with the elephant horn, back-and-forward **** that they did.
PS. Yes, it still hurts.
