Now here’s a real TV Cream obsession – the opening titles from mid ’80s BBC1 Sunday night centrepiece Big Deal, starring Ray “I’ll Keep It, Just To Help Me Remember” Brooks as improbably-named card sharp Robby Box, and Sharon Duce as his “long suffering” other half, Jan. Featuring heart-searing power pop from trilby-wearing Bucks Fizzer-in-chief, Bobby “G”, and a load of cards and fivers going down the drain (enduring image, isn’t it?).
