Post 610 - Kerri Biddell and Mick Leyton - Sons And Daughters Theme - Sons And Daughters Theme (Extended)

The theme music to Sons and Daughters was written by Peter Pinne and Don Battye and sung by Kerri Biddell and Mick Leyton. There are two main versions of the music: one in three-four time and one in four-four time: the first version was used as the main closing theme for the majority of episodes shown in 1982 and 1983, while the second version was used predominantly for all the remaining episodes from 1984 to 1987. In addition, there was the opening theme, which consisted of the song's chorus followed by an instrumental, most of which was never heard to any great extent. The two full versions of the closing theme were released on the two sides of a 7" single in the UK in April 1984. Entitled "Sons and Daughters Theme" b/w "Sons And Daughters (extended)" (A1286) and credited to 'Kerri and Mick', the single reached  Number 68 in the Top 75, and stayed in the charts for three weeks. It was released on  A1 records. mp3
