Here you go. From wikipedia's "Inspector Morse" page:

"The theme and incidental music for the series were written by Barrington Pheloung and use a motif based on the Morse code for "M.O.R.S.E.", starting with the opening notes and recurring all the way through.[7] In the documentary, The Mystery of Morse, Pheloung states that he occasionally spelled out the name of the killer in Morse code in the music, or alternatively spelled out the name of another character as a red herring. The series also included opera and other classical genres as part of its soundtrack, most notably pieces by Richard Wagner and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, whose Magic Flute is a significant plot device in one episode."
