  • What is this tune?

    Stop, Look, Listen

    Can anyone solve this mystery? This funky flute library track has been on my wants list for years now - it's the theme from 'Stop, Look, Listen', but I don't know what it's called or who it's by.

    So I turn to my fellow Vultures for assistance - it's a longer version than the one I put here previously, and in mp3 format too.

    Any help very gratefully received!

    It doesn't ring any immediate bells mate sorry. Sounds bosworth(y).

    I found this cool ITV Schools page.

    Sadly it only says what the *old* theme was. (Thats not your page is it?)

      Hmmm - had a listen and can&#39;t say I recognise it, but I&#39;d go along w/Sermad when he says it sounds Bosworth-like.

      As a guess I&#39;d say it could possibly be the work of Anthony Mawer - he was fond of a flute or two - and that would tie-in with the Bosworth bit, I suppose, as he did a lot for that label.

        Ooh - interesting. Thanks for that. Now, who&#39;s got some Bosworths?

        If it helps any more, there&#39;s a little bit of synthesiser in it too - a couple of glissandi at the start. So if anyone can think of any Bossies with flute and synth on them, we may be getting somewhere.

        The ITV Schools page isn&#39;t mine, by the way.

          While I think about it, that tune also reminds me quite a lot of some of the stuff that came out on the Southern label in the mid 70s - once again, a label that Anthony Mawer recorded for a lot.

          In fact, the more I think about it the more it sounds like his work, and I know a lot of his stuff did end up being used as TV signature tunes.

            I&#39;ll certainly investigate that - I&#39;ve got a fair bit of Mawer stuff too, nothing like this, but he certainly liked his flutes, so its a possibility. What actually came out on Southern in the 70s? My Southern stuff stops at about 1969 with a few 78s&#33;

            I was thinking also that the percussion section had the sort of homemade quality of some of Barry Stoller&#39;s work for de Wolfe too - any thoughts?

            All this is very much appreciated - I&#39;ve been after this tune since I was five&#33;

              Lord Thames,

              thats a track from a Regency Line lp called &quot;Rockin&#39; in Rhythm&quot;. I had this lp awhile ago but traded it.

              Cheers,
              David

                      OH YES&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33; (&#39;scuse the caps, I&#39;m dead excited&#33 Many many thanks for that&#33; Shame you just missed the birthday honours list, I&#39;d have nominated you for a knighthood.

                      It makes sense it being a Regency Line track, actually, with all the links between that company and ATV - I suppose there&#39;s a chance it could have turned up on an early Bruton too.

                      Now, where can I find a copy??

                        Yes, I wondered if it was Focus too at one point - they certainly liked their flutes, and the fact &#39;House Of The King&#39; was used as the theme tune to &#39;Encounter France&#39;, &#39;Treffpunkt Deutschland&#39; and &#39;Don&#39;t Ask Me&#39; probably helped as well&#33;

                        &#39;Harem Scarem&#39; was actually used as background music in another schools series, &#39;Kontakte&#39; too.

                        If it was a Focus tune, it would probably have taken up one and a half sides of an LP - sadly, I don&#39;t think the Regency Line version will do that&#33;
