Vision On / Sound On - Themes and Rarities Celebrating the Centenary of UK Broadcasting


2022 sees the hundredth anniversary of both licenced broadcasting in the UK and the BBC, this CD set celebrates this and contains a musical collection of themes, spin-offs and songs about broadcasting from its first 40 years, a time when the signature tunes and themes were as important as the shows themselves.

The set includes such rarities as the full unedited version of Here's Looking at You from the first public television broadcasts to Radio Olympia in 1936 and Television from the official opening of the TV Service.

Full themes from drama and comedy shows, children's programmes from both Radio and TV plus long unheard jingles from TV commercials, and many themes that have never been re-issued on CD such as the Carry On related Our House, the alternate Warner Brothers recording of the Maigret theme by Ron Grainer, the complete unedited single version of An Ordinary Copper from Dixon of Dock Green and more, alongside station idents and spin-off records like Pat Phoenix's Rover Chorus from Coronation Street.

Add to this other classic themes and station idents, all mastered to Jasmine's usual high standard. and you have a perfect celebration of the golden age of broadcasting.
