Robert Farnon was born 1917, and died in 2005. The Canadian composer, conductor and arranger moved to the UK after world war 2, and, like Barry Gray, settled on the island of Guernsey. Farnon worked extensively in film and television. Among his memorable theme tunes are Armchair Theatre (1956-1974), Colditz (1972-1974), and Secret Army (1978). He arranged and conducted albums for Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett. He won four Ivor Novello Awards.
