Retro TV Friday

John Barry, who for my money was the greatest film composer ever, died last week. I meant to write something about it at the time, but I didn't get the time. And I don't have as much time now as I'd like to have to talk about just how great a composer he was. He didn't write movie music; he wrote music that was used in movies.

But here's a clip of a TV theme that Barry wrote - to the swinging 70s show The Persuaders!, starring Tony Curtis and Roger Moore.A British import, shown on ABC (ala The Avengers), it didn't fare as well, but it's still good fun.

As for some of John Barry's other work - well, I'd wager you might recognize one or two of these.
