Listening closely that seems to be a different recording/performance of the ToD score. Would be nice to have a good quality recording of the music only. It sounds nice, with some additional music also.
Does sound like they might have rerecorded it, especially the part when the smoke fills the chamber, where they extended and repeated a section to make it last longer. I can definitely recall seeing other '80s television where they used pieces of film scores as music, but I can't recall the specifics.
ABC will be broadcasting the second episode of "Back to the Beginning" Friday 12/28 at 9pm. From the previews it looks like this will encompass the Ark of the Covenant. Also in the preview you will hear some familiar music in the background.
I saw the first episode last week and it was pretty informative and fun to watch. They probably could have spent a lot more time on each subject, but it was still a good show.
In 1985, it occupied the time slot between Knight Rider and Miami Vice on NBC. Here's the transcript of the second episode, "Your Place or Mayan." it's on YouTube, starting here.
Billy's late archaeologist friend had a theory about the lost Mayan civilization; Gloria's graffiti artist friend has the apparent genetic memory of the Mayan language. Just the right ingredients to get 'Indiana Hayes' to take the Misfits on an expedition in search of the lost Mayan temple.
Phineas and Ferb the Temple of Whatcha doon, ferb and phineas are dressed in indy like appearal, doof is dressed like belloq. and isabella is like Elsa... and we call it a maze phineas is sapito and ferb is indy when they do the bag switch except with a key. and the Mummy episode they run away from a underground flood and boulder..
Also in an episode of MacGyver where he's asked to go find the Holy Grail he says "Indiana Jones already found it. I saw the movie."
MacGyver had many Indy references. I remember an episode where he had fallen in a den of snakes and he make a path of fire to keep them away and in another where he found himself in a booby trapped place of Incas origin and found some kind of treasure. It was corn if I remember correctly.
If anyone watches the Big Bang Theory, the one that comes on will be about raiders of the lost ark. Sheldon's girlfriend will watch it for the first time and ruin it for him, so he tries to ruin something for her.
Location: midlothian Illinois just south of chicago
on this week's show "the goldbergs" the youngest child has a raiders of the lost ark poster in his room , not much of a reference but nice seeing the poster in a room like i had when i grew up in the eighties
A rather strong reference/homage/whatever that's been forgotten about by the fans here (including myself until earlier today) came from an unexpected source.
Xena: Warrior Princess did an entire episode spoofing Dr. Jones in their second season! Gabrielle became Janice "Mad Dog" Covington, Xena had become Mel, a demure Southern Belle, and that guy Ted Raimi played was doing his best Claude Raines impression.

Immediately set upon by armed thugs, Melinda is quickly rescued by Covington, who drives the trespassers off with her gatling gun.
Mel explains that while sorting through her deceased father's records, she found a telegram from Janice asking for help in translating ancient writings and has come to offer her services...
You can find the entire Xena Scrolls episode on Hulu Plus and Netflix's Instant View services. Subscription required for both, of course.
In the first season of the Fantastic Four animated series, the episode entitled “The Mask of Doom Part II” (1994):
Under Dr. Doom’s castle is a booby trapped maze including a giant spiked rolling ball, at which Ben Grimm remarks, “Dr. Doom watched an Indiana Jones picture!”
Later on Reed, Ben and Johnny cross a rickety, treacherous rope bridge to get back into the castle. And once back inside they discover that Sue has been placed in a room which will reduce in size every eight hours until she's "very hard pressed."
In order to prevent her death the others must go back in time to ancient Greece "to find a certain artefact" (the Coffin of Argos) and return it to Dr. Doom.
Ben asks, "What's an artefact?" Which is odd, as we know he's been an Indy fan since Raiders!
New episode of the Librarians (episode 4) "The Librarians....and Santa's Midnight Run" had a direct reference to Indy.
It did the 'map' thing, when they travel across large distances by car/plan complete with the line and what sounded like a mix between the Indy score and bad christmas music. But it was a direct homage.
A friend of mine showed me the latest episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. In which, one of the ponies is in hospital and find a book called Daring Do and the Quest for the Sapphire Stone. The segments based on the book are a pastiche of Raiders with a hint of James Bond. Even some of the music of Daring Do approaching the Sapphire Stone is a nod to the Raiders Soundtrack
I saw this earlier today, Season 2, Episode 16, titled "Read It and Weep." It's one of the more fully executed Indy pastiches I've seen, music, camera angles, and even aspect ratio included. It's on Netflix Instant in the States through February 2nd.
