Great news! I really like how they have reintroduced the original theme music. It's a bit hard to tell from the clips shown, but is that actually *the* original or a new version? It sounds great whatever the answer.
I think it's a slight remix of the 1993 version (IMHO, the best version of the theme).
Well if it's a remix then it's very faithful to the original. That's always a good thing. I agree with you, Worzel, that theme for me *is* Family Fortunes. I just about remember the previous theme on its original airing (I have heard it a lot on Challenge repeats) but it's the 1993 theme I really grew up with. I used to love watching FF back then, so it will be good to see it return on Sunday.
The theme tune aside, I am really very pleased they are using 'proper' families rather than celebrities and their families. I always enjoy seeing the public on gameshows as they tend to be a lot more amusing.

It sounds like the original but with a slight 2020 reworking and more oomph at the end.
That isn't the original Family Fortunes theme tune in the trailer, but sounds like the later arrangement of the FF theme from the Les Dennis hosted, Central/Carlton era, which is of course more familiar than the ATV/Central era FF theme composed by Jack Parnell.
That said, an arrangement of the VK era theme would've been fine.
"The Not-So-Late-Show with Greg Mitchell" will hopefully return in some form, somewhere soon.
Unlikely to be on Roch Valley Radio though.
That's yet another reworking and rearranging of the 1993 version.
I still get baffled that no one can hear the familiar Family Fortunes theme in that reworking.
There was a heated debate about it on here years ago to the point I not only got confirmation from the person who reworked the theme, but also created a video illustrating it (comparing it to the 2001 theme as it seems to borrow most from that version).
