This piece of music was produced by BBC Young Musician of the Year 1996 and Divine Comedy pianist/arranger, Joby Talbot. It is actually based on The Divine Comedy’s ‘In Pursuit of Happiness’, but it is not just a cover. While the beginning of the song is reminiscent of The Divine Comedy’s song, then it evolves into something different. It seems that 2 versions of the tune were used on Tomorrow’s World, one being the opening theme, and the other for the closing credits. A long edit is also featured on a Joby Talbot’s Showreel sampler.
