Composer team to score return of CBBC’s Raven


Award-winning cult fantasy adventure show Raven is to return to CBBC with a new format, new star and new music by composer team Jode Steele and David Wainwright.


With an intriguing back story for new lead Aisha Toussaint (pictured) and lots of exciting and action-packed challenges, the new series of Raven expands and develops the format of the original to make it appeal to a whole new generation of viewers.

Raven aired between 2002 and 2010, challenging a group of six young ‘warriors’ to a series of challenges over the course of three weeks, with the kids guided in their quest by the shape-shifting Scottish warrior.

Overcoming trials of strength, intelligence and agility, only one contender would survive the various rounds of elimination to be crowned Ultimate Warrior.

The new series will be scored by composer team Jode Steele and David Wainwright who specialise in scoring action-adventure Hollywood trailers, most recently the Warner Brothers forthcoming feature Live By Night starring Ben Affleck. Their recent television credits include Bear Grylls Survival School (CITV) and Release The Hounds (ITV).


Battle is expected to commence later in the year on the CBBC channel. It is an in-house BBC production and is produced by BBC Scotland. Series Producer is Nick Gunaydin and executive producer is Sara Harkins.
