Watch This Session

When it comes to trenches Tony Jordan has dug them, fought the good fight and emerged the decorated victor.

And he has the scars to prove it . In a writer’s life every day is a possible win or lose, every project is campaign which will send you marching onwards or reeling back.

Tony may have risen from foot soldier to five star general but not without survival strategies, battle plans and down right bravery.

In a career made notable by its great successes, Tony talks candidly with fellow writer Barbara Machin, about the high and lows and the realties of the day to day process.

From soaps to singles, from hired hand to show runner, from market trader to company director of top Indie, Red Planet, Tony has covered a lot of ground and now faces the rapidly-changing world of the small screen with inspiring enthusiasm.

Get real, make it real, make it happen, with Tony Jordan.
