The piece of music which plays over the opening and/or closing credits of a TV show, and is intended to become intimately identified with the series.

Theme tunes began in the earliest days of radio, where there were no specific channels to switch to and listeners would often have to tune their crystal sets with some precision in order to pick up the correct station, which may have been located hundreds of miles away. A theme tune allowed them to select the correct station. Shortwave radio stations still use theme tunes, called ''interval signals'', at the beginning of their transmissions. Well-known interval signals include the Voice of America's ''Yankee Doodle'' and the BBC World Service's ''Lilliburlero''.
