20th Century Box title sequence - Mon, 29 Jan 2007 02:59:00

I eventually found a clip with a very young Danny Baker on YouTube showing the original titles for '20th Century Box', it has a totally different recording of 20th Century just for the programme theme tune.

Woo-hoo!

Surprisingly snazzy titles, considering the age of the show.

Also, kind of Foxx-ian in terms of the imagery.

I'm not sure if that show ever made it to our Green-Vally'd land but I seem to remember being aware of it - and John's involvement with the theme - from some stills and an article in a Creative Review yearbook.

Nice find, Mr Cheddar!

PS: Danny Baker: not so much a case of "where are they now?" but more an issue of "were they ever to begin with?" and , further "if they still are, who gives a monkeys?!".

Nasty sweaty little oik.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! mad

I beg to differ; he does a fantastic show on Radio London; very funny (IMHO anyway)

Great clip; DB sounds very different!

Sweaty, definitely; nasty, a matter of opinion re your cocken-eyes; but undeniably very intelligent, I am led (reluctantly) to believe. I feel dirty for saying it.

I like this slightly different version of 20th Century. Wish it could have been included on the Metamatic reissue.But perhaps that would be nitpicking. Lol.

This version of 20th Century was definitely considered for inclusion on the recently re-issued edition of Metamatic , but we couldn't locate a copy which was of a suffiently high enough quality. And, as you rightly said, it is only slightly different... wink

Thanks for that Rob. It's good to know that it was at least considered for the Metamatic reissue and an attempt was made to locate a decent copy. Not that I'm complaining about what was included on the reissue.
