Secrets Beyond the Screen

Jun 5, 2022

For their 40th episode, Mel and Trish invite the incredible Anita Jacoby onto the podcast to chat about her recently released book Secrets Beyond the Screen.

Some women are born destined to have fascinating lives on multiple levels and Anita Jacoby easily falls into that category. She held senior production roles with all of Australia’s commercial networks as well as the ABC, SBS and Foxtel on programs such as 60 minutes, Gruen Transfer, Witness, Enough Rope with Andrew Denton, LAWS, Good Morning Australia and the Today Show. She was also the first woman in media to be appointed managing director of an international production company.

As well as holding positions on numerous boards including Women in Media, Headspace and the ABC Advisory Council, she has recently written a book Secrets Beyond the Screen which not only covers her career in television but also the fascinating discoveries of secret parts of her father’s life whom she shared a close, loving relationship with and thought she knew so well. In her own words it’s a story that “proves that children, no matter how wise or old they become, never truly know their parents.”

Enjoy the many fascinating stories of gorgeous Anita Jacoby.
