The sad news of Laurie Johnson's passing reached Medd Towers today. He was 96. Johnson enjoyed a wide and varied career in the entertainment industry and wrote some of the seminal TV theme tunes of the 60s and 70s. The Professionals, Animal Magic and This is Your Life would normally have been enough to earn you bragging rights. But this, ultimately, is what he'll be remembered for. You just can't imagine Steed and Mrs. Peel clinking champagne glasses to any other music.
