This is "Barwick Green" and is the theme music to the long-running BBC Radio 4 soap opera The Archers. It is a "maypole dance" from the suite My Native Heath, written in 1924 by the Yorkshire composer Arthur Wood, and named after Barwick-in-Elmet.

This recording used between 1950 and the 1990s was played by Sidney Torch and his Orchestra

The Sunday omnibus broadcast of The Archers starts with a more rustic, accordian -arranged rendition by The Yetties
