Tim Wander

Tim Wander is a Chartered Engineer who tried to retire a few years ago but somehow managed to get even busier. Today he is an historic consultant, author, lecturer and a specialist in historic building renovation.

Wander has written many books about the early days of radio broadcasting, Marconi and several BBC radio plays. His first stage play debuted at Northwood House in November 2018. His second was accepted for a main theatre run in Chelmsford with a possible West End transfer but was postponed due to Covid 19. In 2016 Wander took over as Consultant and Curator for Science and Industry for Chelmsford City’s museum service. He is now developing plans to celebrate the various centenaries of British radio broadcasting in 2020 and 2022.

Wander lectures all over the UK (and on cruise ships) on the history and career of Marconi, early wireless and broadcasting, military history, PLUTO and the amazing history of the Isle of Wight.
