Mark Russell (born May 23, 1960)[1] is a British composer whose works include music for the television series Cold Feet, Murder City, The Bill and Kingdom. He presented Mixing It on BBC Radio 3 from 1990 to 2007, when the programme ended. His score for Cold Feet was nominated for a BAFTA Award for Best Original Television Music in 1999, though lost to Ben Bartlett's score to Walking with Dinosaurs.[2] In 2012 his score for the BBC series Leonardo was nominated for an Ivor Novello Award in the Best Television Soundtrack category.http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/music/news/a382203/the-ivor-novello-awards-2012-winners-in-full.html

Born in London, Russell graduated from the University of York in 1982 with a degree in music; he was a presenter on University Radio York but was "thrown out ... for laughing while reading the news".[3]
