As background music, I mean, not as part of a reggae-related show or anything.

Yesterday they played King Tubby's Conversation Dub behind an item about coat hangers on a comedy show...

Well I can think of a couple:
1. I remember hearing Millie's "My Boy Lollipop" on "Heartbeat" a couple of years ago. Smile
2. There was a documentary series about zookeepers (in Devon, I think) on telly about 5,6,7, years ago and they used to play (among other reggae/ska) snippets of Reco's sublime 2 Tone versrion of "Oh Carolina" and more recently... Smile Smile
3. ...often on "DIY SOS" I've heard snippets of ska stuff, while "the boys" are knocking a wall down or building a kitchen or something, but the track that sticks out most for me in this program is Tommy McCook's "Yard Broom" a wonderful, laid-back piece of Jamaican R&B Jazz that slightly pre-dates ska. Snippets of this are played quite often. Smile Smile Smile

I have heard a lot of the music on these shows and wondered if anyone is getting money for the use of them Question

Seems funny they tend to use the tracks on these DIY shows, as I have heard "Baby" Val Bennett & The Upsetters on one a few years ago now Shocked wonder why JA Music and not some American R&B or soul Rolling Eyes

Respect to the TV people who "dig out" the backing music to some of these programs - at least they try to make interesting choices - it could also be a plot to interest a wider range of audience. Wink

I think these folk have taken a good lead from advertising agencies who have dipped into (to most) less-obvious musical areas, e.g. Jackie Wilson's "No Pity In The Naked City" (Audi early-90's), through the Kentucky Fried Chicken Northern Soul series, to Impressions' "It's Alright" (Alfa Romeo??? now)....shame more use isn't made of Jamaican music though Sad

The Trojan Reggae track I always remember on TV is in Only Fools And Horses, Delboy is chasing Denzil through the market cos he knows hes got a redundancy cheque.

Denzil has a cassette box playing Big Youths Johnny Reggae the music suits the chase great fun!!!

Yeah I remember that one, Laughing A really good choice.

I can't remember anymore from "Only Fools & Horses" which I am surprised to say as you would think there should have been the odd track playing in the Market?

Maybe there wasn't any JPP,

The early days of "Only Fools And Horses" would have been around the time (or very soon after) Bob Marley died ( Sad ), when reggae's popularity with the masses (once again) took a nosedive and, to an extent, the music turned in on itself! ...if you see what I mean Smile

I expect there were snippets played in the market scenes, but of other musical types, thus making them odd by definition Smile

I'm "delighted" to report hearing the Gable Hall School Choir's oh-so-legendary "Reggae Christmas" on Eastenders (in the caff, while Pat was talking to Laura) this evening (Mon 22nd. Dec.) Wink

Christmas is now complete! Smile

Eastenders . . .

Many years ago on this show, when there was a Reggae stall in the market, and they played some reggae music to set the scene, they made the mistake of using some made for TV reggae that was used only to accompany the Channel 4 teletext pages early in the morming before the actual programmes started. Oh how I laughed.

I can't believe anyone watches these shows - they are cheap TV and I avoid them like the plague Wink

...we have wives who like these sorts of programmes, but if I hear a decent bit of music, I'm watching the programming hoping to hear more!

(That's my flimsy excuse, anyway!!! Wink )

Was "Slavery Days" used on a Cup A Soup ad a couple of years back or did I dream it? Confused
