Bafta-winner wrote theme music for shows including Ground Force and made albums with poet laureate

The celebrated composer Jim Parker, who won four Baftas during a 60-year music career, has died aged 88 after a long illness, his family have said.

Parker was behind some of television’s most recognisable theme music, including the BBC’s Tom Jones period drama, as well as the intros to Ground Force, Changing Rooms and ITV’s Midsomer Murders, among others.
