I still think though that the sensible choice is the theme to The Archers.
I'm with you on that one Iain! I haven't heard The Archers in years, over a decade even, but all you need to say is "'Dum ti dum ti dum ti dum, Dum ti dum ti da ta'" and that tune came right back. For some reason I can't find it on my radio here in the US... strange that.
For those that don't know The Archers is is a BBC radio soap opera concerning the goings on in a village in the English country side. I believe it was started during (or immediately after) WWII as a vehicle to give crop management advice to farmers. And it doe shave a very catchy theme tune... I need to find a mp3 of it somewhere.
Seeing as we are likely to hear the UK national anthem a lot next year at the end of Grands Prix (Juan PABLO Montoya) they better get a move on and get it changes to the Archers theme PDQ!
