The composition that became known as the Paddington Bear theme was composed by Herbert Chappell and began life as incidental music for the 1972 BBC adaptation of Lord Peter Wimsey. Its first commercial release was on the b-side of the Lord Peter Wimsey theme single in 1972, where it was titled "Size Ten Shuffle" and credited to "Boyfriends". This recording - which is not the one actually featured in Paddington- has since appeared on several TV theme compilation albums. The composition first became connected with Paddington in a theatre show, "The Adventures of a Bear Called Paddington", in 1973.
