Blast From The Past

Thanks (or, if you care, no thanks) to Nick the 'Welsh Born Icon' , I was reminded of THIS lament. (Please please you just have to click that link.)

Eeeh, fair plucks the heartstrings so it does, the signature tune of a quintessentially English childhood (if you happen to be that sort of age).

Enjoy.

Oh, and by the way, I know what it is, but do you?

Isn't that the theme for the age old, black & white series of "Robinson Crusoe" that always ran on past the end of the summer holidays? I never did see the closing episodes of that.

Yes!
Sorry Technodyke (LOVE the name, btw); I didn't want to say until someone guessed it.
Yay Steggy - you got it. I think they did it deliberately like a sort of morality tale in case you happened to be bored and inactive for six wet weeks.

For about three years running I tried to skive off the first week of school to watch the end of that series. Loved it. Never saw it all.

Robinson Crusoe music!!! (I am afraid I have to admit I saw it the first time they showed it) Brilliant series.
Thanks for the memory...I probably haven't heard that for 35 years but it immediately conjured up the taste of my mum's cooking...tea-time at ours.

Never saw the program, but it is a sweet, if not melancholy tune :-) I guess it took me back to a place I'd never been, then?

What a fantastic blast from the past that is. It conjures up memories of being curled up on the sofa with my quilt wrapped round. Ah simpler days.

I clicked on the link and for some odd reason, who knows why, my real player said, Joni Mitchell, Woodstock, then it started to load. Your link.

I started to come in here and rave about how I love Woodstock, then your link started playing and I was like, That's not Woodstock...hmmm, it's nice though...

And my cooko clock dings. xx

Did Robinson Crusoe ever finish? Didn't it just go on and on and you slotted right back into it as the next holiday rolled around?
