Below is the INDEX with pages including the original 1990 CD booklet text, the film credits, and how you can obtain the audio CD, the DVD, or the recent limited edition vinyl single; also included are the first BBC TV schedules, a picture gallery with pictures of Robert Hoffman; my own research in trying to find that haunting and endearing theme music on the CD; plus many more interesting items including an account of the filming of the series by a film extra together with his own photos!

[February 2010] Feedback from emails, site statistics, and signings in my Guestbook indicate that many people are still searching for the origins of that haunting theme tune and have stumbled on my own Robinson Crusoe pages just by chance; many come from searches at the "Google" and "Yahoo" sites and quite a few from the "Wikepedia" pages, so it proves that the haunting theme tune, and the series, is somewhat fixed in peoples' memories even after all this time! Many visitors do not even know that there are CD’s and DVD’s available now, so my site will help them to relive those halcyon and nostalgic childhood days!! (I just wonder how many Tapes, CD's and DVD's my site had encouraged people to buy over the years, since I first set up these pages, sixteen years ago, in 1995!) I’m glad that I have been able to raise the profile of the series and public awareness of the music being available on CD’s and DVD’s. Like me, all those years ago, their quest is now over!

[11th January 2011] I have been interviewed today for a BBC programme about this series to be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on Thursday 20th January 2011 at 11.30am. See the INDEX below to hear this programme.

Enjoy these pages, and the music, and I’d love to hear your feedback about your own memories and how you found this web site. Please view or sign my Guestbook at the foot of the page. Many thanks.

Are you haunted by that Robinson Crusoe theme tune? What memories does it bring back? In this article I suggest that searching for that haunting theme tune over many years can be likened to our searching for times long gone by when life was a lot simpler and less complicated than it is today, even if it was rather harder - just like Robinson Crusoe’s life on that island. It’s not just nostalgia we are after but a better way of life from long gone days; and that wonderful theme tune from “The Adventures of Robinson Crusoe” reminds us just how far modern day technology has removed us from the realities of a simpler, non-technological, life. Maybe that’s why so many people today are continuing to search for that wonderfully endearing and hauntingly popular theme tune. (Click HERE.)http://www.davidsemporium.co.uk/crusoe13.html
