One comment on “Sig Tunes – The Archers and Farming Programme
  1. I remember the Farming programme theme. It dates back to the 70’s when the programme was presented by Philip Wrixon, recorded in studio B and was TX’d of a Sunday lunchtime. I’m not sure if it was just a local programme or whether it was networked; probably the latter. That said it was a long time before Countryfile was thought of. Well done to Peter for finding it.
