Blue Peter

Iconic theme updated by Sanj Sen

BAFTA-nominated composer Sanj Sen (Danger Mouse, Moshi Monsters) has added some new production polish to the the world's longest running children's tv show, with a newly arranged theme tune.

It's the 12th version of the Blue Peter theme in the show's 62 year history and is based on a tune called "Barnacle Bill".

You can listen to the 2021 theme here.

What our client says about us

Blue Peter worked with Sanj on the re-mix of the Blue Peter theme and we are really happy with the result. He worked with us to interpret the brief to give a modern twist to the theme but keeping it recognisably ‘Blue Peter’, communication was brilliant and The Composerworks were flexible working with our Production delivery schedule.
