Rael Jones has composed the music for ‘The Kings’, a four-part documentary series chronicling four of boxing’s greatest prizefighters —Roberto Durán, Marvelous Marvin Hagler, Tommy Hearns and Sugar Ray Leonard.
The series is executive produced by James Gay-Rees (Amy, Senna, Drive To Survive) and Paul Martin (Diego Maradona, Drive To Survive), produced by Fiona Neilson (Oasis: Supersonic, Coldplay: A Head Full of Dreams) and directed by Mat Whitecross (Oasis: Supersonic, Road To Guantanamo, Coldplay: A Head Full of Dreams).
‘The Kings’ spotlights boxing’s evolution from the end of Muhammad Ali’s era to the era of the four boxers, set against the seismic political and socio-economic shifts taking place in the United States. Through in-depth interviews and archival footage, the series also examines the very personal battles that each man waged on his unique journey to the center of the sports world.

Dominik Scherrer has composed the music for the Mammoth Screen produced series ‘The Serpent’ which aired in the UK in early 2021 and will begin airing on Netflix April 2nd. The series is written by Richard Warlow and Toby Finlay, directed by Tom Shankland and Hans Herbots and produced by Stephen Smallwood.
Inspired by real events, ‘The Serpent’ will document the crimes of Charles Sobhraj. As the chief suspect in unsolved murders of young Western travellers across India, Thailand and Nepal’s ‘Hippie Trail’ in 1975 and 1976, Sobhraj had repeatedly slipped from the grasp of authorities worldwide to become Interpol’s most wanted man, with arrest warrants on three different continents. He became known as The Serpent due to his skills at deception and evasion, but also was labelled The Bikini Killer on account of the clothes worn by some of his victims. Tahar Rahim stars as Charles Sobhraj with Jenna Coleman as his partner Marie-Andrée Leclerc, the cast also includes Billy Howle and Ellie Bamber.
The Serpent has become BBCiPlayer’s most watched new title since Normal People with over 31 Million streams across the series so far.
