TV Themes Orchestra - Great Australian TV Themes


Here's one for Sven Libaek fans - Australian TV themes arranged by Sven and played by the TV Themes Orchestra. Antipodean baby-boomers will recognise many of these tunes, folks overseas will probably recognise "Skippy (the Bush Kangaroo)". BTW "Skip" has become a colloquialism for "Australian" - a friend born in Greece informed me that she "Married a Skip" - i.e maried an aussie...

A range of australian composers on show, Sven himself wrote the music to track 5 - "Bush Theme From 'Nature Walkabout'"


01 - L. Lewis - Theme From 'This Day Tonight'
02 - G. Lyall - Theme From 'Woobinda'
03 - T. Tycho - Theme From 'You Can't See Round Corners'
04 - J. Eggington - Theme From 'Sue Becker'
