Bit of a long shot, this one!

Back in the late '60's or early '70's, Granada TV broadcast a programme local to the north west of England which had a theme tune with the lyrics (as far as I can remember) :

Over the hills of Lancashire the men folk once did toil
While the women sat home and waited, watching the kettle boil
Now it's the women who're out 'til four
Keeping the wolves from the family door
Sometimes they must wonder just what it's all for
In the flats of Lancashire
Sandwiched between the bingo halls
Supermarkets and factory walls
There's hardly room to wash your smalls
In the laundrettes of Lancashire

Does anyone know who the singer / songwriter was and if there are any more lyrics ?

This thread was not supposed to be refreshed. I was only trying to make a link to it in the "one post" thread.

Damn! now I've turned my one-post thread into a 3-post thread.

Not to be confused with "Over the Lancashire Hills", the words of which are in this thread.

Yes, still looking.

I'd like to know if it was part of a larger work or just a ditty, penned to cover the seconds needed to show the opening titles. I'm still not sure of the singer / songwriter but I have a feeling it was Jeremy Taylor.
