Poaching Wars deals the central issues of Rhino and Elephant poaching in South Africa and will be shown on ITV at 9pm on 22nd August.

The music for Poaching Wars was created in a collaboration with Ed Tracy, writer and director of forthcoming Film 4 thriller ‘Captcha’ which Sam has also composed the score for.

‘ It was a pleasure and an honor to work on these films especially as I come from a background of animal conservation having grown up on a wild life reserve.

I think Tom Hardy has done a great job in asking important questions and tackling some very complex issues head on’.
