    Used to like this series a lot when I was a youngster, would also like info on alternative versions of the theme tune.

      There are two versions on the Standard Music LP ESL120 - 'Comedy - Romantic/Nostalgia/Sad'; version two is the TV version, version one is a lighter, dry-soudning arrangement played on woodwind.

      There are also a number of variations on the theme, presumably written by Nick Harrison as incidental music for Budgie, which are scattered across various Standard LPs - there are two of these on ESL 120, but basically anything credited to Nick Harrison's likely to be a variation on the theme.

      There's also a rather good version on the recent CD by a gentleman calling himself King Of Woolworths.......
