TV Show Intros That Left A Huge Impression on You...

So AHers, was there the intro theme to a TV show that really had a big impression on you when you were younger, that made you think “that’s cool, I’d really like to be a deep sea diver/doctor/copper/pilot etc” ?

For me, one TV show intro that had a massive influence on me as a young child was Channel 4’s Brookside, launched in 1982 and ran until 2003. The newly built housing estate of Brookside Close in Liverpool fascinated me at the age of 7 and I went on to specialise in housing and urban planning.




Any TV shows or TV show intros that left a lasting impression on you?

Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Have memorised it word for word.

Glenroe. Sunday nights, back to school the next day.



And now I'm a farmer, cheating with a girl name Fidelma.

Last bit was a lie, I just fully read the OP.

Brookside for me too. Now I'm married to my sister after I buried the neighbour under their patio.

The World at War; those faces in the flames and that music stayed with me for years after I first saw it at the age of 7 or 8.

The Episode 1 cold open was also particularly powerful...

The Bill... You knew some IC1 male was about to get lifted around Sun Hill as soon as that punchy theme tune kicked off.

Ma ma ma mask
Mask crusaders working overtime fighting crime, fighting crime

It’s not a cool theme tune if it doesn’t cram fighting crime into the lyrics
