* Popular with British TV companies for their opening logos, particularly in the 1960s-80s. Anglia Television, [=ATV=], ChannelFour, [=LWT=], Rediffusion, Thames, TVS and Yorkshire Television all used fanfares at one time or another. Hilarious in the US, where many viewers exposure to British programming was limited to ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' and ''Series/TheBennyHillShow''. The stirring fanfare of Thames Television was followed by a half-hour of watching a pudgy guy chase half-naked women around.
