This piece, composed by Richard Blair-Oliphant and played by the BBC Orchestra, replaced the long-running "Arthur" theme for the 2010 election and has been used for all subsequent BBC election coverage. At first I didn't particularly like it because of what it was replacing. However it's really grown on me and I haven't been able to get it out of my head for the last few days. It has all the gravitas and drama necessary for election nights. In an era where television has shamefully abandoned the concept of great theme music, this is a very welcome modern addition.
