Earlier this year I was sent, first to London, and then to Amman, Jordan to consult on a 30 Episode Drama series the BBC are planning in the Middle East.

In this photo I'm standing with one of the lead actors from a popular Bedouin drama series shot in Jordan. On the right is Tim O'Mara (long standing director of Eastenders, Coronation Street and other British classics).

It was a fascinating trip and very interesting to see, first hand, how different production is done in Jordan compared not just to the West but to other parts of the Arab world where I have worked in the past.
