The incidental music that is playing on the radio in the hair salon, where Catweazle distracts the women while Carrot grabs some hair from the floor, in the 4th episode of the first series, 'The witching hour', is the same music that is played when Catweazle and Cedric are walking across the fields to The Bull at Bodford, in the 2nd episode of the Second series 'Duck Halt'.

It's called, 'Day Trip' by Mike Vickers, recorded in 1969. It was from the Standard Music Library and used in a few other shows of the '70s too. The original library album was 'Activity/Travel'(ESL 113). I've just looked and someone has uploaded the track to Youtube which is handy:
I would LOVE to know who wrote that haunting and sorrowful finale music to both season 1 and 2. Stunningly evocative and utterly, no pun intended, timeless. It reduces me to tears, even today
It's called "Mosaic" and was written by Raymond ("Ray") Jones - an enigma in British incidental music composing. Apart from some work for Doctor Who in the 1960s, his work and movements have proved difficult (if not impossible) to trace. It is generally believed that the music exists in an archive somewhere, however extracting it is going to be the hardest part. Personally, I think we might be disappointed if indeed it does surface - without the visuals it may lose a lot in the translation. It certainly was used throughout both series and may have been edited to fit certain parts, but I agree with you so much that for the finale of seasons 1 and 2 it is absolutely perfect and hugely emotional.
It's not mentioned in his entry on the IMDb website.. Dr Who is though.
Yes, it's a well hidden piece of music,as is Jones himself. There's some other examples of his library music at the Standard Music Library. Not much to connect with Catweazle although I do like "Late In The Year" Search for Raymond Jones
