The music of SHOESTRING (Series 2)

With thanks again to John Riley, here is a list of the commercially available music heard in Shoestring series 2 (1980).  It's a much longer list than for series 1 and surely explains what has held up these episodes on DVD for so long.

Have Network Distributing managed to clear every one of these tracks? I guess we'll find out soon.
