In Conversation... Composer Segun Akinola

In 2017, composer Segun Akinola was named as a BAFTA Breakthrough Brit, a programme which showcases and supports the next generation of creative British talent in film, games and television. With the 2019 initiative now open for entries, we caught up with Akinola, who last year took over composing duties for BBC phenomenon Doctor Who, to find out his thoughts about his year of BAFTA mentoring, advice and support. To use his words, he was “jazzed” about the whole experience. Interview by Paul Simpson
