Listen to the best TV theme tune ever: Jam For World In Action

wia

For no real reason other than I love it, I’m posting the theme tune to Granada TV’s World In Action. For those outside the UK, World In Action was a British TV current affairs programme that ran from 1963-1998. It was renowned for its hard hitting, campaigning journalistic style and was normally on primetime at about 8pm.

The wonderful, evocative theme tune can be heard below, although it’s marred slightly by claims to its authorship. Producer Johnathon Weston was ‘given’ the composer credit, although Shawn Phillips insists that himself and Mick Weaver (on the organ) actually “improvised it on the spot”. Read more about World In Action here.
