Some of the best theme tunes are for sport programmes, and they tend to be the longest lasting too:

Grandstand


World of Sport


ITV Football (originally the Mexico 86 theme tune)


But the best isn't a TV theme at all:

Someone posted the Simon May holiday theme tune, but the one I remember is this...


------------------------

Looking outside of the UK, there is Star Trek Voyager , with a wonderful score by Jerry Goldsmith.


TinTin The Animated Series


The Good Fight


And some of my favourite classic UK show themes...

999


Poirot

Composed by Christopher Gunning

Children's Hospital (1994)

Debbie Wiseman composed this theme (as well as Judge John Deed)

Edit:
One more mention...

The original closing theme for Casualty (which I think is better than the opening theme)
