Tim Tate

Tim Tate is a multi-award winning documentary film-maker, investigative journalist and best-selling author. Over a 32-year career he produced and directed almost 90 films for all British terrestrial channels as well as Discovery, A&E & Court Television networks in the United States. His films have been honoured by Amnesty International, the Royal Television Society, UNESCO, the International Documentary Association, the Association for International Broadcasting, the [US] National Academy of Cable Broadcasting and the New York Festivals.

Tim’s 1992 documentary investigation into the Robert Kennedy Assassination (Channel 4 and A&E) was the first television film to broadcast clear evidence of a second gunman; it also revealed previously unheard tapes and de-classified documents suggesting the CIA had been involved in the murder.

He has written for all national newspapers and is the author of 14 previous non-fiction books, including the best-selling Slave Girl (John Blake Publishing: 2009) which has sold more than 600,000 copies internationally, and spent three years in Amazon’s Top 100. His most recent books are an investigation into more than twenty unsolved murders carried out by the Yorkshire Ripper (serialized in The Mail on Sunday); and the harrowing story of Ingrid von Oelhafen, a Slovakian child kidnapped by the Nazis for the Lebensborn experiment to create a new ‘Master Race’. That book has been published in ten countries throughout Europe as well as South America and the United States.
