    Football Focus is a BBC television show, broadcast on BBC One on Saturday lunchtimes, covering football, presented from the 2009/2010 season by Dan Walker. The programme is broadcast from MediaCityUK in Salford, Greater Manchester. The programme previously formed part of the Grandstand programme but has since August 2001 been considered a show in its own right. Prior to the launch of Match of the Day 2, it was often the first chance for viewers to see analysis of the Sunday and Monday Premier League games. The programme is now a weekly magazine, with reports from across the country at all levels of English and Scottish football. It previews the weekend's fixtures and provides updates from the early Premier League game. Since BBC have the rights to Premier League highlights, Football Focus also shows the key moments from the midweek matches. A version of the programme which looks at world football airs on BBC World News. The theme song for the programme is different for each new season. For the 2002/03 season it was "Backaround" by Elevator Suite. The 2003/04 season featured a cover of the Stevie Nicks track "Stand Back" by Linus Loves featuring Sam Obernik. For the 2007/08 season it was "Kill The Director" by The Wombats and for the 2009/2010 season it was Jetstream by Doves, from the album Kingdom of Rust. For the 2012/13 it was "Undegpedwar" by Y Niwl from the self-titled album.
