Forward to: Radio & Television themes 01
Following on from my difficulties with the PRS and MCPS in the UK, I'm starting a new site built around British Radio and Television Theme Tunes. The site will be of interest to British people all over the world, but will be of less interest of an American audience. Since I cannot put up the actual music files on this site, my intention here is to reference the source of procurement. History has been well represented by radio and television themes, and this is an attempt to catalogue some of the major works. I hope that you enjoy this new section of "Sterling times".
NEWS UPDATE! As many of you already know, I have been approached by both the Mechanical Copyright Protection Society (MCPS) and the Performance Rights Society (PRS) in the United Kingdom urging me to license music clips on my site. It is complicated obtaining the necessary permissions and expensive given that quotations indicate a price of £881 (including VAT) a year. I have reluctantly decided to remove all music files from the relevant www.sterlingtimes.co.uk servers. I am continuing to point to music files on third party sites.
