The brief was to create a modern punchy title theme to set the tone for the show, and then to use that musical material to create arrangements of the theme in different styles to take us through the years.

The title theme is based around a memorable chord sequence, an uplifting string riff, and a huge heavy drum beat.

Throughout the programmes we then hear over 20 different arrangements of the same piece, in styles ranging from bebop, rock and roll, sixties pop, funk, prog, new romantic, pop-punk, and grime, as we work our way though modern history.
