Tim Bouverie left Bryanston in 2005 after completing his A levels and went on to study History at Christ Church, Oxford. He says that his time at Bryanston was incredibly useful in preparing him for this, the weekly assignment system being very similar to that at Oxford.

After graduating he then went into making history documentaries. His work on an episode of Dispatches led to him working as a political journalist/producer for C4 News, most notably alongside Michael Crick. His interest, understanding and expertise in modern politics led him to choose the issue of appeasement as a topic for his first foray into writing, and he regards himself as being hugely aided by a wealth of fascinating documentation stemming from what he describes as the ‘golden age’ of letter and diary writing.

In June this year Harry Goodwin, a fellow Old Bryanstonian about to embark upon a History degree at Edinburgh University, met with Tim to discuss with him the issues he explores in his new book, Appeasing Hitler: Churchill, Chamberlain and the Road to War, published in April by Bodley Head. Tim also spoke about his book at the Chalke Valley History Festival 2019.
