Biography

Fromwikipedia

Christopher Hale is a British non-fiction writer and documentary producer.He was educated at the University of Sussex and Slade School of Fine Art - and began his television career as a film editor. He made some apprentice films at the BBC, including a One Pair of Eyes called Nationality Uncertain - and was offered the opportunity to make a major documentary for Channel 4 called Is there Anybody There, with the psychologist Nicholas Humphrey. He has since made some series and many one off programmes, including Search for the Sons of Abraham.In 1989, Hale's Byline: Blind to Science (BBC) won a Special Award from the British Association for the Advancement of Science (BAAS).In 1999, Hale made Atlantis Reborn for the BBC science strand Horizon, a critique of pseudo historical ideas focusing on the myth of Atlantis and the claims of writer Graham Hancock. When the documentary was transmitted, Hancock complained to the Broadcasting Standards Commission - now Ofcom - which exonerated the broadcaster of any significant unfairness. Hale described the experience of making the film and dealing with the anger it provoked in a chapter The Atleantean Box in 'Archaeological Fantasies', edited by Garret G. Fagan for Routledge.In 2002, Hale was commissioned by Bantam Books to write a book about the Heinrich Himmler-sponsored 1938–1939 German expedition to Tibet. Research in archives in the UK and Germany, as well as research visits to India and Tibet led to Himmler's Crusade. Hale has featured in a Secret History for Channel 4 and ZDF.Himmler's Crusade has been translated into Romanian, Polish, Greek and other languages. In 2006, the Italian translation of the book won the Giuseppe Mazotti prize.Hale recently published Hitler's Foreign Executioners- an ambitious analysis of SS recruitment of non German police and Waffen-SS units and their role in the Nazi genocide. This is also available in Italian, Czech, Polish and Estonian versions.
