The Planets premiered on BBC 2 on 28th May 2019. Narrated by Professor Brian Cox, the series follows the dramatic lives of the eight majestic planets that make up our solar system through five episodes -“A Moment in the Sun – The Terrestrial Planets” (Inner Worlds), “The Two Sisters – Earth & Mars”, “The Godfather – Jupiter”, “Life Beyond the Sun – Saturn”, “Into the Darkness – Ice Worlds”.

The score was written by composers Andrew Christie, Anže Rozman, Jacob Shea and David Fleming, who work as a part of the musically diverse composer’s collective Bleeding Fingers. Founded by Hans Zimmer, Steve Kofsky and Russell Emanuel, Emmy and Bafta nominated Bleeding Fingers Music is a home to exceptional and sonically diverse composers. The collective’s work includes soundtracks for Planet Earth II, Seven Worlds, One Planet and Blue Planet II, all previously released on Silva Screen Records.

“He (Prof Brian Cox) will tell (he promised, standing on a rocky precipice as a low sun flared behind him) ‘stories of worlds born and worlds lost… their destinies more entwined than we ever imagined.’ The effect is vastly heightened by the symphonic soundtrack from composer Andrew Christie, a protege of Hollywood music giant Hans Zimmer and who sounds as if he’d be right at home in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.” – The Arts Desk

“Armed with an intense musical score, very reminiscent of the video game series Mass Effect, The Planets does a good job keeping things feeling suitably epic and intense throughout the episode.” – The Review Geek

“In Brian Cox’s new series high drama, a cinematic soundtrack and CGI combine to make life on earth appear truly miraculous” – iNews
