The title music for 'Emmerdale' was composed by Record Producer and composer, Tony Hatch, who was also married to singer and regular co-composer Jackie Trent . For the original TV recording of the title music, the budget would only stretch to six musicians, including oboe, piano, acoustic guitar and violin.
