The theme tune I remember was called 'The Song of the Maggie'.

When they (the BBC) reprised the series with Gregor Fisher (Rab C) there was a smart new theme tune I think written by Phil Cunningham. I remember going past a sesh at Sidmouth about 10 years ago and hearing it blast out. It was a really good tune but oest seem to have been recorded.

The Maggie was a different film about a puffer, starring Paul Douglas(?). I can hear the tune played in the Para Handy series but will have to think about it!!

The original B&W series? I've seen it referred to as The Para Handy Polka.

Phil Cunningham's tune was called "Manus Lunny's Plower Pot", but Jimmy Shand had a tune called "Para Handy", written by Ian Gourlay (released in 1960 with "The 6:20 Two Step" on side B ... possibly written for the BBC series "Para Handy - Master Mariner" shown about 1959/60).

The latter seems quite likely to be what was asked for in the first place.

Try here and scroll down to hear the tune. It's the Para Handy Polka by Iain Gourley.
