Some of the themes sound like they are lifted directly from the programmes so include snippets of regular opening dialogue, but they do all appear to be the original versions, despite the booklet containing no details of who is performing the tracks.

Certainly everything has been available before in varying quality but it's jolly nice to have them all together in one handy collection.

And now to the question!

Rather amusingly the tracklist for the CD contains an error. Instead of the listed 1964 version of the Danger Man Theme you get Tony Christie performing Avenues And Alleyways - which show is this from?

The answer was The Proctectors.

Congratulations to our winner David Gorton.
