The radio was on this morning and suddenly I heard Guy's voice! It was a brief contribution to an interesting progamme on Radio 4 about the Robinson Crusoe TV series and theme music. I didn't know the series myself (as Guy obviously didn't Smile) but it was interesting in any case and may be nostalgic for some poeple. Wink

I remember it well.

It used to be on every morning during the summer holidays along with a programme called "white horses". I'll listen to this tonight. Never thought I'd be discussing this on an Elbow forum

Now White Horses was one of my favourites and gets a mention on the prog. On an Elbow forum? Kind of makes sense, after all, Build a rocket boys! is supposed to involve themes looking back on growing up... Wink Wonder if it includes samples of old TV themes? Laughing

Ta for the links Mr W!

I can see me, my brother and sister all ont' settee eating jam on toast waiting for this to come on.

Oh wow, that's wonderful, you're a star - I used to LOVE that programme, it's so good to see a clip!!

Talk about scattered B&W Wink

Well the thread did start with hearing Guy on the radio, how much on-topicness do you need?!

It was originally from Yugoslavia - well, that's where the stud farm is where it was filmed (Slovenia now) where the horses are bred for the Spanish Riding School in Vienna (sorry, anoracing from a mis-spent pony-loving childhood Wink)- and it was dubbed into English and broadcast here - presumably, from that clip, in Germany too!

(I hold my hands up, this bit *is* off-topic)

Does anyone remember this one - Belle and Sebastien from the early 60's. I absolutely loved this as a small child and cried my heart out when the dog got shot.

I'm sure Guy's played a song by the band that took their name from this programme. Wink
