Going back to the start of the thread I think Simon May is one of the " kings " of themes. Holiday 86 is great IMO. I actually bought " Telly Hits 2 " out of Woolies, ( on cassette! ) just for that one. I've also got the 7 inch vinyl of " People Like You " sang by Melody ( I believe is / was his wife ) the theme tune to the BBC series " People " which I think was hosted by Frank Bruno for one series.

I think all of the Breakfast Time / News themes were great until corporate identity struck in.

Used to like the Reporting Scotland theme pre 1999 which was written by Guy Michelmore - it's on TV Ark.

Something I've never seen as a clip is the 1982 Reporting S theme tune which was ELP's Fanfare for the Common Man. The first appearance of the original three parallelograms used to represent BBC Scotland.

The theme to People is the one I've been looking to find for ages!

It's a great tune!

I recall, around the 1990s at least, all of the Holiday music - titles and the beds - was excellent; really suited the style of the programme at that time. Also liked the electric guitar version (of which I unfortunately lost the MP3) used for Holiday: Fasten Your Seatbelt.

Two Howard Goodall comedy tunes - Mr Bean and the original opening to Red Dwarf - both being so far away from what you'd expect for a typical 'comedy' theme tune, maybe even a little bit sombre, but they work superbly in their respective shows and haven't dated in the slightest.

Time to bring this out again then, from Songs of Praise Christmas 1988, an absolute corker in cringeable religious remixes:
