Around the World in 80 days by Ross141 on 8 June 2009 12:30pm
After looking through my old collection of DVD's, I came across Michael Palin's travel box set. So I sat down, and began to joyously work my way through the entire collection.

The point in the topic is that I'm looking for the "Around the World in 80 days" theme tune. After hunting high and low for it, I still haven't been able to come across it.

Does anyone have any information - Or even the theme to send?

Much appreciated!

Ross141: can't help you very much,but I like your post.

The Theme music to BBCTV's "AROUND THE WORLD...." by Michael Palin was composed by the young BBC composer PADDY KINGSLAND,who arranged his own theme music to suit Michael's visiting many different types of countries during the 80 days.

If you want to pursue your quest you could try contacting Paddy Kingsland himself through London sound recording studios he founded in 1982,contact details of which are below:
