Appropriate for today, the bloke from Consett was on the local radio today, and I never realised his work would be so well-known but he is not. Until now of course...

Got there without the clue, Cole Porter (pictured) wrote the original song Who wants to be a millionaire for the film High Society starring Celeste Holm (pictured) whereas Keith and son Matthew Strachan (pictured) wrote the theme music for the BBC's Who wants to be a millionaire to be used internationally and have since won an ASCAP award for it.!! :) So the link is WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE!! :-D
