New Hans Zimmer documentary to air this month

A new documentary about the life and work of famed composer Hans Zimmer is set to debut on UK TV this month.

'Hans Zimmer: Hollywood Rebel' will look over the German composer's 40+ years in the music industry, which have seen him produce a number of albums, performance pieces and film soundtracks. It will air in the UK on BBC Two at 9pm BST on 16th October.

In addition to Zimmer, the film will feature interviews with directors with whom Zimmer has worked on films, such as Christopher Nolan, Denis Villeneuve and Steve McQueen. It will also take in clips from the composer's tour of Europe earlier this year.

Speaking in a statement, Zimmer said: "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."

During his career, Zimmer has scored films such as 'Interstellar', 'Dune' and 'Inception', and picked up the Academy Award for Best Music (Original Score) on two occasions. His honours also include multiple Grammy and Golden Globe awards.

Last year, Tale Of Us reworked one of Zimmer's works, 'Time', for a compilation put together by Pete Tong.
