Sea Hunt (adventure, starring Lloyd Bridges)

     (Syndicated, 1957 - 1961) 


Theme: "Sea Hunt Theme"

    [Ray Llewellyn was a pseudonym assigned to several music writers
     when they worked for hire on ZIV-TV, productions, with a buyout 
     contract since they would not collect royalties; Among them
     were ASCAP writers David Rose, Warren Barker, Jon Epstein
     and Raymond ("Ray") Bloch.
          
     Some lesser-known non-affiliated writers who may have worked
     under this arrangement (as seen in cues for "King of Diamonds")
     were Dick Bancroft, Bill Donati and Judith Pines.
          
     According to production music library researcher Paul Mandell, 
     this THEME was most likely written by David Rose (ASCAP)]
