Composer Hans Zimmer will be celebrated in a new documentary, and it’s coming to BBC Two this month.

Hans Zimmer, responsible for the iconic scores to the likes of Crimson Tide, Inception, The Dark Knight Trilogy, as well as winning an Oscar for his score to The Lion King in 1995, not to mention arguably his greatest work – playing synthesiser on The Buggles 1979 hit single Video Killed The Radio Star – will be celebrated in a new documentary. And it’s coming to BBC Two later this month.

Hans Zimmer – Hollywood Rebel will follow his career from his early days in prog rock band Krakatoa to becoming one of the world’s most celebrated film composers.

Famous faces interviewed for the film include Ron Howard, Denis Villeneuve, Christopher Nolan, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Barry Levinson, James L. Brooks, Gore Verbinski, Steve McQueen, Stephen Frears and Tim Bevan.

Zimmer said of the documentary that “I’m honoured to be sharing this insight into my career and life with the BBC audience. My hope is that this documentary inspires and emboldens you to unapologetically pursue your passions and find a deeper understanding for my scores and above all, music.”

Hans Zimmer – Hollywood Rebel will air on BBC Two at 9pm on the 16th October.
