In addition to being set there, The Bay’s filming location was also the coastal town of Morecambe, on Morecambe Bay in the county of Lancashire, in the North West of England.

What is The Bay ITV theme song?

We’re currently trying to find the name of the music that plays during the shows opening credits and who sings it. We’ll update this page with the details once we have them. The series soundtrack was scored by the musician and composer Samuel Sim.


The first episode begins with Lisa enjoying a night out on the town with her female friends where, after having a few drinks and singing some karaoke, she meets a guy at the bar called Sean Meredith. After just a brief chat, the pair head for a nearby alleyway to partake in some rather crude coitus.

But little did Lisa realise at the time, she would become Sean’s unspeakable alibi for a time when his kids go missing. Understandably though, she has little desire to reveal this fact to the police investigation and goes out of her way to delete the clubs CCTV evidence. Will the truth come out and if so, who will be the one to reveal it?
