  Your fave Newsround theme tune!
Updated 28 March 2002, 12.47

For Newsround's 30th birthday, we've opened the archives and found all the old titles from the show.

Vote for your favourite - and we'll play the one you choose in full on our birthday show on Thursday 4 April at 5.25pm on BBC One.

And, even better, the original Newsround presenter John Craven is coming back to present the show for one day only!

Watch each of the titles by clicking on the icon below.

And if you want more old-style Newsround info, come back later this week when we'll have a full section looking back at the history of the programme!

The theme tunes

1972
The original funk: John Craven and his legendary cardigans.


1987
The remix: computer graphics and lightning bolts!


1991
Space pop: satellites, space stations, stripes and circles


1995
Squelchy grooves: cut-out cartoons and jazzy graphics.


1997
Minimalist techno: sharp and sleek, it's so very cool.
