The Flashing Blade

I've just been reminded of one of the most magnificent kids TV series from the 60s and 70s called The Flashing Blade. The theme tune was played on the Chris Evans programme on Radio 2 on Monday and I can't get it out of my head.
It reminded me of watching TV at Andrew Blacktop's house on Saturday morning. This dubbed French epic drama had action aplenty and the Spanish were baddies.

Here are the titles from You Tube: Flashing Blade titles

Here's a link to some background on the programme, here.

Great lyrics too:

You've got to fight for what you want
For all that you believe
It's right to fight for what we want
To live the way we please
As long as we have done our best
Then no one can do more
And life and love and happiness
Are well worth fighting for
And we should never count the cost
Or worry that we'll fall
It's better to have fought and lost
Than not have fought at all
Let's always take whatever comes
And never try to hide
Face everything and anyone
Together side by side
