Classic British TV Themes Quiz

The Movie-TV Connection Game is taking this month off (at its vacation home in sunny Florida). So, in its place, we're introducing the first edition of the Classic British TV Themes Quiz.

We'll play a snippet of the opening or closing theme of a British TV series from the 1960s or 1970s. Your mission (should you decide to accept it) is to name the show. All of these TV series were also broadcast in the U.S. There are ten themes, so it won't take long to play.

Just click on the video below to play. Please leave a comment to let us know how you did--but don't list the answers. Good luck!

  2. Well, I completely sucked at that and only got 1 right, but it was super fun to hear those grooving themes together like that. Had to play it twice!

    1. You know, they did have some pretty cool themes in the 1960s and early 70s. It's surprising how many were released as singles or included on albums even though they weren't hits on the charts.

  4. I only got 3 correct, from shows aimed at a younger audience my time period I guess.

  5. Two or three right answers seems to be the average, so you and Skippy done good. This was a fun quiz to do, but if we do it again, we'll pick Amercan classic TV series.
