Listen and understand why Daft Punk were so big in Britain...everyone born from 1960 onwards in the UK watched this (and some still can). The Doctor Who theme is perfectly retro/futuristic. You can def hear a seed for Queen's Flash Gordon in there too.
[update: re daft punk /uk. post 11/20 in NYT below.]
