I like that! I have found a lot of TV signature tunes from the 60's 70's and 80's have really interesting basslines. From the original MI tune to Seinfeld ( ok that might have been sampled) via the ubiquitous Barney Miller I love trying to pick out the basslines.
Personal faves are the Piggy Malone theme from the Two Ronnies and The persuaders

Just out of interest, MI was Carol Kaye,Seinfeld was Jonathan Wolf on Keyboard bass and Barney Miller
was (I believe) Chuck Rainey.

I'm not sure about the Two Ronnies,but it was Ronnie Hazelhurst so it could possibly be Dave Richmond who did other work
for Hazelhurst including'Only Fools...'.

The bassline on the Barney Miller theme was played by Chuck Berghofer, but is often miscredited to Chuck Rainey or Carol Kaye.

I've just checked some old copies of Bass Player...they credited the theme to Chuck Berghofer once,who
then wrote in to say that it was actually Jim Hughart who played the theme to Barney Miller.

Edit..Rainey and Kaye have been credited with playing on some of the music from the show,but not
the theme.
