Jonathan is currently the showrunner for Tommies, a four and half year long real-time radio drama on BBC Radio 4 about British and Indian Army signallers in WW1.

Jonathan was a writer on Never Mind the Buzzcocks and a Radio 1 producer for Simon Bates and Steve Wright. He’s written TV tie-in books, gagged up hundreds of TV shows, presented radio travel documentaries, was the man behind Len Deighton’s Bomber in the 90’s and exec-produced the most-hated comedy series ever on Radio 4.

He attributes his fearless attitude to undertaking any new commission to having once worked with Dale Winton.
