Omega Race on TV

Yesterday evening, I watched the German detective series "Der Alte" on TV.
The episode was called "Der Zeuge".  There was a scene where a photographer
was sitting in a bar when he got a telephone call.  After the call, the
man went to the door and was shot from a car.

While the man was talking on the phone, there was a familiar sound on the
background.  First the shooting sounds from the Bally Midway game Omega Race,
then the melody that is played when the screen becomes cleared from the
moving enemies.  I had the feeling that the sounds were "better" than on the
VIC-20 or C64.  When was this game released as an arcade game?  I don't think
that the episode was very old - at most some 10 years.
