Academy award-winner Hans Zimmer and Bleeding Fingers Music will compose the theme and score respectively for BBC Planet’s latest landmark title, One Planet: Seven Worlds.
This is the team’s third outing into the world of natural history, following their BAFTA-nominated score to Planet Earth II, and critically-acclaimed music for Blue Planet II.
Part of the new BBC Planet strand and set to air this autumn on BBC One in the UK, One Planet: Seven Worlds will capture the “spectacular, unseen and unexpected stories of Earth’s seven Continents.” Narrated by Sir David Attenborough, Zimmer and his team at Bleeding Fingers Music will score the brand new seven-part series from BBC Studios Natural History Unit, due to hit screens around the world this Autumn.
Zimmer said “To compose music for yet another ground-breaking BBC natural history show is something we were incredibly excited about, particularly after such wonderful experiences with Planet Earth II and Blue Planet II. It’s very different from previous big landmark series – each episode is a real, tangible place, a place where we live and belong and a place with its own unique feel and distinct character and that’s really exciting from a musical perspective. The character of each continent will be reflected in the music and I think that will resonate with the audience.”
Speaking of Hans’ involvement in the series, BBC Studios’ CEO Tim Davie said: “We are thrilled that Hans and Bleeding Fingers are onboard once more for what will be an incredible series. His musical flair is unsurpassed and we cannot wait to have his immersive sonic experience enthrall us when we watch One Planet: Seven Worlds.”
