Hans Zimmer for Blue Planet II

Hans Zimmer returns to natural history for Blue Planet II.

Award winning composer Hans Zimmer has been announced as the composer for Blue Planet II.

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 from later this year.

This is Zimmer's second outing into the world of natural history, following his title theme and score production for Planet Earth II. Once again Zimmer will compose the theme and score for the series with Bleeding Fingers’ co-composers Jacob Shea and Jasha Klebe.

"It’s a joy to compose to such beautiful, powerful and inspiring picture," said Zimmer.

"Once more the BBC has raised the bar and we intend to rise to the challenge.”
