I always found the theme tune from the 70s comedy MAN ABOUT THE HOUSE to be very catchy.Also TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED.

There was a very haunting theme for the Public Eye show in the 1960s and 1970s by "Robert Earley" (Bob Sharples). It had several versions but was very rhythmic, very dark, with a lot of interesting modern jazz discordance - fitted in very well with the down at heel British private detective that the series was about. The tune seems to pop into my mind at least once or twice a week.

There don't seem to be that many memorable themes in modern British TV drama these days, where it seems they are going through a phase of very atmospheric, but very unhummable tunes. I started to notice this in the late 1970s, with George Fenton's music for the Euston Films series Out.

The Van Der Valk theme always closed 'Alan Partridge's Mid-Morning Matters' on Sky Atlantic - somehow I always felt sad at the end!

You're A Star by Carl Wayne also appeared in the drama 'Cruise Of The Gods', about a fan convention on a cruise ship featuring the cast of an 80's sci-fi series.

The Lionsgate ident at the end of Nurse Jackie always sounds to me like the Star Trek: The Next Generation theme!

The Cuckoo theme from Vision On also began The Adventures of Gurney Slade. Jarvis Cocker on 6 Music asked his listeners if this tune came before Mose Allison's 'Parchman Farm' as both had this recurring piano riff!

Did anyone watch the bbc adaptation of Kingsley Amis's "The Old Devils"? I loved the theme tune to the series - it was jazz, started with drums and then a saxophone joined in. Despite many searches, I have been unable to find out what the music was. Does any very clever person out there know what the music is? Thanks so much.
