Stephen Abs Wisdom has an infectious enthusiasm for the past, a lively manner and an immediacy about the way he shares his fascination for the world around us. His popular history of science show 'Wicked Inventions' plays worldwide and his expert informed presentation style has been used by a host of productions looking for a quirky flavour with family appeal.
Under the umbrella of Ancient Wisdom he has brought history to life for literally thousands of people. His performances on Sky One's Brainiac History Abuse, his appearances in Nick Knowles' Historyonics show for the BBC, his acting roles in Documentary drama and his practical experimentation for Time Team where he reconstructed on camera, a seventeenth century boat entirely from hemp paper, to name but a few.
The boat worked by the way, a successful maiden voyage on the River Medway.
Here's a showreel we made a while ago that gives a flavour of his screen presence.
It's a little frayed at the edges, (but, in fairness, so is he these days.
Holding an audience the traditional way! No fancy graphics here as Wisdom makes a personal appearance at the Daily Mail Chalke Valley History Festival
Whether it's popular Science with a historic flavour, building a home-made Hovercraft in the studio or out on location in the hot deserts of....(er..) a quary in Northamptonshire, Wisdom is a practical and professional lively face to brighten your broadcast.
