In 1966, Delia created title music and effects for a BBC TV programme Counterstrike produced by Antony Kearey which were never used because the project was “shelved because of ‘The Invaders’ on ITV.”[1]

The project was revived in 1969 with music and effects credited to Brian Hodgson.[2] Ten episodes were broadcast weekly on BBC One at 21.10 from 8th September 1969[3] to the 10th November.[4] but the theme music used for it has nothing to do with Delia:
