Every now and then, I wish UK TV dramas didn't have to be quite so worthy. Pitch an idea for a show and you'll inevitably be asked what does your concept have to say about Britain today? Grrr. I miss shows that didn't feel obliged to offer social commentary.
One such show was The Persuaders, a series so cheesy it could easily have been renamed Quattro Formaggi for the Italian market. Plus it had a cracking theme tune by the late, great John Barry [as heard above]. If you enjoy that version of The Persuaders theme [featuring Róisín Murphy on vocals], you can download it free and legally here.
