John Barry's music used on TV

Saturday, 30 January 2010 13:15

January 30, 2010

In the January 28th, 2010 edition of BBC 2's The Culture Show, a feature on Wikileaks, used the main theme from The Ipcress File, presumably to reflect the secrecy aspect of this website.

In the January 29th, 2010 edition of Andrew Marr's History of Modern Britain: The Land of Lost Content, focusing on the 50s and early 60s, Barry's music from Out Of Africa ("Safari") was used to accompany archive scenes from that era.

On 29 December 2009, BBC's documentary, The Many Faces of June Whitfield, included Barry's The Roll Dance (Chaplin) as the background music for the final three and a half-minutes, including the end credits.

During an episode of the popular BBC TV series Yes Minister, entitled "The Death List", Jim Hacker and his wife go to see a Bond film.
However, although the excerpt we see on the cinema screen is not from a real Bond film, the music we hear accompanying it is one of Barry's Mood tracks, recorded for Chappell a couple of years before the Bond series began!
