Christina Hamilton


Christina Hamilton worked in television production at the BBC for 30 years. She travelled extensively, production managing a wide range of classic documentaries for the Music and Arts Department including film specials on Arthur Miller and Merce Cunningham. In 1991 she moved to the Natural History Unit in Bristol where she was a Production Executive on the BBC-2 series The Natural World. In 2003 she returned to her home city of Hull. She freelanced as a Producer/Director whilst studying part time at The University of Hull, graduating 6 years later with a First Class BA (Hons) in Arts and Humanities. She now combines writing and her interest in history and art history with voluntary work at the Ferens Art Gallery, Hull.


Christina is working on Cats Through History, a fascinating history of our favourite feline friends. Some of our most distinguished historical public figures in literature, art and politics have fallen love with cats.  Ranging across the centuries from Cleopatra to Warhol, Hamilton  reveals surprising, interesting and astonishing stories about  famous owners and their cats.  Winter 2019
