Play School, Jackanory, Captain Pugwash, Swap Shop, TISWAS (yes, with Sally James!), The Clangers, Banana Splits, Magic Roundabout, Ask Aspel, John Craven's Newsround, How?, etc etc. They don't make them like that any more. Trying to remember that series set on an island (B&W, I think) with a belting, almost orchestral, theme. Help me out.

Same year as me! Obviously I’ve got a better memory for the time being ;) That theme tune is haunting and takes you right back
