Robinson Crusoe, The Adventures of (historical adventure, starring Robert Hoffman)

    [aka: Robinson Crusoe]

    (Syndicated in the U.S., 1964)
    
     This series derived from a French production filmed in Germany in 1964
     with a different music track. For the English-language version aired in 
     the United States (in 1964) and in England (in 1965), a new music track 
     with a totally different theme tune was created by the Italian composer 
     Gian-Piero Reverberi who collaborated with Robert Mellin on the soundtrack.
    
     The haunting theme tune turned out to be quite memorable, and was "covered"
     by the pop-synthesizer group "The Art of Noise" in 1989. This made it more
     well-known outside of the original 1964 TV series.
