Tim Tate Biography

Tim Tate

Tim is a multi-award winning documentary film-maker, investigative journalist and best-selling author. Over a 30-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 is also the author of 13 published non-fiction books, including 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, kidnapped by the Nazis for the Lebensborn experiment to create a new ‘Master Race’.


How I Found the Agency

After 25 years of arranging my own commissions and agreements with publishers I decided it was time to find an agent.    Primarily, I was looking for someone with whom I could develop a long-term relationship on a slate of non-fiction projects,  but who could also work with me on a future narrative fiction series which has been burning away inside me.    I was deliberately looking for what might seem to be inherently contradictory: a boutique agency, but one with a seriously successful track record.    When I discovered Andrew’s web-site I was pretty sure I had found who I was looking for – not least because of the impressive wealth of information and advice it contains.  When we met a few weeks later I knew for certain that I had found the right agency.
