Movie clips: The Persuaders

The Persuaders were a pair of globe-trotting, sophisticated playboys who solved crimes of passion and espionage every week on UK television.
This clip is from the first episode ever of the series; it aired on 17 September 1971.
The footage of Danny and Brett doing a car race (not on a track) is done with a cool song playing over it, that scene alone gives the hour ten out of ten.

Background song: Tony Hatch & Jackie Trent - Gotta get Away

Video: Grethe and Jörgen Ingmann - Dansevisen

This beautiful song won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1963. It was performed by the couple Grethe & Jorgen Ingmann. The music was composed by Otto Francker and the lyrics was written by Sejr Volmer-Sörensen.
Jörgen turned 80 this April..
Read more about them

I consider it as the best Eurovision song (along with Mrs. Gall, of course ;))
