Competition Terms and Conditions

1. The Classic FM TV Music Countdown promotion (‘Promotion’) is organised by Global (as defined in the General Terms and Conditions). The Promotion will run from Monday 9th August 2021 to Monday 23rd August 2021. Global is the Promoter. The ‘Promotion Partner’ mentioned in these Specific Rules is the Radio Times.

2. IMPORTANT: The Promotion is subject to these Specific Rules and the General Terms and Conditions which are available here. Entry into the Promotion constitutes acceptance of these Specific Rules and the General Terms and Conditions.

Details of the Promotion:

3. To enter the Promotion, you must go online to the Promotion entry page at, register your details and submit your vote.

4. To vote in Classic FM’s TV Music Countdown chart, an entrant must vote for one piece of their favourite TV music. The entrant must either select their favourite piece from the list provided, or input their own suggestion if they can’t find it on the list. Entries must contain classical or orchestral music; any entries which do not include classical or orchestral music will be removed at our discretion.

5. Online entry will open at 09:00 on Monday 9th August 2021 and close at 23:59 on Monday 23rd August 2021. Entries received before or after this time will not be included in the Promotion.

6. Entries will not be counted if they are incomplete or the piece of music cannot be accurately identified.

7. Entrants must include their email address, phone number, or address to ensure their votes are not duplicates. Votes submitted without contact details may not be counted in the chart and will not be entered into the Promotion.

Votes submitted using social media or posted online will not be eligible to enter the Promotion or be included in the chart. Only eligible votes submitted on the online form will be included in the chart. Postal votes are not eligible.

8. After the closing time of the vote, three winning entrants will be selected at random from those who have submitted eligible entries in the vote. The three winning entrants will be notified by telephone within one week of the closing date and will be sent, by email or post, details of how to accept their prize. Failure by the winners to accept the prize in the manner specified within 14 days of the Promoter’s email or letter will make any claim invalid and the Promoter will then select another winner (via random selection) from all remaining eligible entries. That subsequent winner must respond to the notification email or letter within 14 days of the date on which they are notified, or they will also forfeit the prize.

9. The new Classic FM TV Music Countdown chart will be announced on air on Monday 30 August 2021 once all the votes have been counted and verified. The 50 pieces with the most votes will be included in the Classic FM TV Music Countdown chart.
