Trumptonshire Themes on CD
The theme tunes from Camberwick Green, Trumpton and Chigley are all available on the 75th anniversary BBC CD of children's themes "Hello Children Everywhere".
Apart from the three main Trumptonshire themes, the CD also contains the instrumental versions of Windy Miller's song and Crockett's polka. The Chigley theme is the full version (or extended mix as it would be called these days) including the rarely heard vocals - "Hurry up, hurry up gather around...". The CD also includes the theme from Rubovia (which was written by Freddie Phillips, who composed all of the Trumptonshire music).
There are also another 18 tracks on the CD, such as "Fireman Sam", "Postman Pat", "Blue Peter", "Rhubarb and Custard" and "The Magic Roundabout". The CD contains a curious mix, covering children's programmes over the decades, although most are from the 1970s and 1980s.
If you do buy the CD, look out for the picture of the Trumptonshire Web's Windows Miller on the inside of the sleeve.
