In the Blood

Matthew Sweet with music for films that explore ideas of heredity and genetics, marking the release of the Irish-British thriller I Am Not a Serial Killer.

Matthew Sweet with music for films that explore ideas of heredity and genetics in the week of the launch of the Irish-British thriller "I Am Not A Serial Killer".

In Billy O'Brien's new film, based on Dan Wells's novel, a fifteen year boy, a diagnosed social-path, lives in fear that he is fated to become a serial-killer. The music for the film is by Adrian Johnston who has given us scores for "Becoming Jane" and the 2008 big screen version of "Brideshead Revisited" as well as music for some of Stephen Poliakoff's film dramas.

The programme also includes music from "The Elephant Man"; "The Island of Dr Moreau"; "Splice"; "Jurassic Park"; "Never Let Me Go"; "The Boys From Brazil"; "Gattaca" and "Creation". The Classic Score of the Week is Ernest Gold's music for "Inherit The Wind.
