Hi! I’m Tim Worthington – writer, occasional broadcaster, and TV’s ‘Clangers Expert’. Well, that’s what the BBC decided to call me anyway.

I started off a long time ago contributing to – and eventually publishing – paper-and-ink (and very badly stapled) fanzines. Since then I’ve gone on to write for The Guardian, The Independent, Doctor Who Magazine and the BBC Music website amongst others. I’ve also written several books including a history of comedy on BBC Radio 1, and a complete guide to the many and baffling singles released by BBC Records And Tapes. You can find out more about them here.

I’ve also contributed to a number of TV and radio shows as both a writer and an interviewee, including Let’s Go Round Again: The Story Of The Magic Roundabout, The Best Of Bad TV, David Walliams’ Awfully Good, The Funny Side Of… and, erm, Woman’s Hour. No, me neither.

I’m also one of the contributing editors of the TV Cream website and its many and varied – and frequently baffling – spin-offs.

If you want to know more, then you could always try this interview with the We Are Cult website, or this one with Creation Records.
