Remember a few years back I was asking about some music I'd heard on Match of the Day?

Well I've found it. Just took a bit of time, that's all...  giggle

It's also used for the London marathon. I don't watch it but heard it on a trailer. Anyway, here it is:

It's called: The Trap by Ron Goodwin.



I absolutely love it!

Aha!  So that's why it seemed so frustratingly familiar.

Bit more detail here:   arrow   Top 10 TV sports theme tunes

It was penned by Ron Goodwin for a 1966 film called The Trap, featuring Oliver Reed canoeing down a Canadian stream. He also wrote film scores for Where Eagles Dare, 633 Squadron and Battle of Britain and it has the same ambiance.
