Other works for television written by Talbot include the theme music for Young Musician of the Year, and the music for the BBC 2 comedy series The League of Gentlemen, which was awarded the Golden Rose at the Montreux International TV Festival.
During 2004, Talbot was Classic FM's first resident composer. Talbot wrote a new piece of music, scored for up to five instruments, each month for the year of his residence. These pieces have also been premiered and playlisted on Classic FM. The twelve compositions form part of a larger piece, released on a CD entitled Once Around the Sun on 23 May 2005.
