Human Planet was broadcast in 2011 by the BBC, the eight part series featured jaw-dropping images that demonstrated mankind’s relationship with nature across 80 different locations and covering the extremes of planet Earth.

Integral to this ground-breaking natural history series is Nitin Sawhney’s stunning orchestral score, up to 50 minutes of music for each episode and all written within a hectic two months schedule.

Nitin’s distinctive musical voice covers the whole spectrum of contemporary music as a producer, songwriter, DJ, multi-instrumentalist and orchestral composer.

His impressive list of collaborations include working with Paul McCartney, Sting, A.R. Rahman, Brian Eno, Jeff Beck, Sinead O’Connor, Jeff Beck and many more.

“Scoring the BBC’s Human Planet series was perhaps both my greatest privilege and greatest challenge. Despite that challenge, the breathtaking scenes of human co-existence with nature and determined resilience provided an inspiration beyond the boundaries of any musical soundtrack. The series itself is a true celebration of human diversity and deeply resonates with everything I believe in.” – Nitin Sawhney
