When I started work at 16, I used to set my Binatone digital alarm clock for 5:55

It would come on just as the UK Theme was starting, as Radio 4 opened, followed at 6 by News Briefing and a review of the papers. I'd listen to that, then get up and hot-foot it to Hayes Station to get on the train to Paddington.

That's how the first four years of my working life started... used to be a great way to wake up.

Anyway.... Radio 4 sadly ditched the UK theme about 5 years ago, so for anyone else who remembers it ... and for those who don't ... here it is.

It takes 5 minutes... sit back and enjoy!

Thanks for that JON, it's a shame they dropped it. On a similar note I find the theme played just before the shipping forecast on Radio 4 particularly pleasant and soothing.
