Tom Wareham

Museum and Media work


Until April 2014 I was Curator of Community and Maritime History at the Museum of London Docklands, at Canary Wharf.  And was one of the team of four curators who created the museum  which opened in 2003.  


I curated the musem's first exhibition  'Londoners at Work', and co-curated the permanent 'London, Sugar and Slavery Gallery'. I also  curated the museum's Pirates: The Captain Kidd Story  which opened in May 2011.


I now work on a freelance basis.


I have worked with the University of Westminster as  a part-time Visiting Lecturer, and still lecture occasionally to a wide range of organisations. I am available for talks to organisations on the history of Oxleas Woodlands, and the Lost Houses of Shooters Hill.


I have worked on numerous radio and television documentaries. My documentary work has included a program on Admiral Thomas Cochrane for Wark-Clements;  working with Peter Ackroyd in 'Peter Ackroyd's Thames; for  Colonial Pictures in ; 'Limehouse - A Victorian Chinatown'; for the Revisitation of the Best of Dr Who box-set; two documentaries on Captain Kidd for National Geographic; and two programmes filming with Tony Robinson for a Time Team Special.
