We’ve teamed up with Radio Times and the BFI to find out the nation’s favourite TV theme tune. And we want to hear from you!

Radio Times, the BFI and Classic FM have joined forces to find out the nation’s top TV theme – voting is open now on the Radio Times website and closes on 31 March.

The results will be announced at the BFI and Radio Times Television Festival on 13 April and today (16 March), we’re celebrating the poll with a special show dedicated to the music of the small screen on Saturday Night at the Movies.

Black Beauty Theme (Galloping Home) - Denis King 1972

In an article on the Radio Times website, our presenter Andrew Collins said: “Just think of galloping teatime favourite Black Beauty by Denis King, Barrington Pheloung’s melancholy distress signal for Inspector Morse, or Michael Price and David Arnold’s timeless refrains for Sherlock.

“Few programmes risk getting underway without the gear-change of an identifying musical signature.”

Listen to Saturday Night at the Movies today at 5pm and cast your vote at RadioTimes.com.
