Television's Greatest Hits

This week, Howard Goodall swaps the silver screen for the small screen with some great original music written for television.

Dowton Abbey Series 2

This week, Howard Goodall switches on the television and celebrates some of the great music written for programmes across the decades.

First up, Howard looks at great period dramas - ranging from Downton Abbey (pictured) to The White Queen, via Brideshead Revisited and Foyle's War.

Some great moments from Dr. Who follow with music from three classic stories - Terror of the Zygons (1975), The End of the World (2005) and The Angels Take Manhattan (2012).

There's also a look at crime shows - from Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy to Broadchurch - and some new releases including Game of Thrones, Vikings 2 and House of Cards 2.

Howard cheekily also features two of his own best compositions for TV - music from Red Dwarf and The Vicar of Dibley.
