No strings attached

Theme tune legend Barry Gray

If the audio stops playing, press stop and allow time for the stream to load.

In response to the spreading rebellion and revolution on the Middle East and North Africa, here are 50 minutes of weird tunes from children's TV shows. Some genuinely bizarre and inventive music, often only lasting a few seconds. We begin tonights programme with the theme tune to Captain Pugwash. And no, there were no characters called Seaman Staines or Master Bates.
