Tony Manson

Producer

Tony Manson has worked in television as a director, producer and commissioner of programmes. His specialty is factual programming - including directing for the popular Open Home and producing a wide range of documentaries.

I fell into TV after studying English literature. My academic interest in Geoffrey Chaucer’s storytelling has since taken me to Neighbours at War and Wayne Anderson: Singer of Songs. They’re actually not that far apart. Tony Manson
