    Last year on entering the crematorium chapel – following my men who were expertly bearing the coffin in a solemn manner, I was struck by a very odd piece of music playing. I had a mild panic, assuming the wrong CD was being used. On exit, the chapel attendant who had noted my distress put me right. ‘Deal or no Deal’ he said – it’s the theme tune’ He was correct. The family had been asked for a piece of music loved by the deceased, this was their choice!

    Worst ever curtain closing theme is ‘Countdown’ – the build up of tension and timing is perfect for the curtain at Glynn Valley! – cleverest is the theme from Loony Tunes. That also times well with the curtain!

    I also add with a serious note that such choices can be appropriate and occasionally quite moving.
