Tim Tate

Tim Tate discusses with Ivan six things which he thinks should be better known.

Tim Tate is a multi-award winning documentary film-maker, investigative journalist and best-selling author. Over a career spanning almost 40 years he has written for most national newspapers and made more than 80 documentaries for British and international broadcasters. 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.

He is the author of 17 published non-fiction books. His 2018 work, Hitler’s British Traitors (Icon Books, 2018) analysed hundreds of de-classified MI5 and UK Government files to reveal the untold story of espionage, sabotage and treachery by pro-Nazi British fascists during World War Two. It received extensive press and media coverage and was selected as Book of The Week by The Times. His book, Hitler’s Forgotten Children (Elliott & Thompson, 2015) which told the story of the Nazi Lebensborn program through the life story of one of its victims, Ingrid von Oelhafen, has been translated into nine languages and published in 16 countries.

In June Transworld/Penguin will publish his latest book – an investigative biography of Michal Goleniewski: the most important, yet least understood spies of the Cold War.
