Music from the Railway Children - BBC 1968
The Piece is by Grieg - Symphonic Dances, Op. 64: II. Allegretto grazioso. The full piece runs to something over 6 minutes, depending on version, but it is the opening sequence (about 1 min 30 - repeated at the end) that was used for the TV series, and which I find so hauntingly beautiful.
