Notes for Barnaby (“Barney”) Richard JONES

Worked as Director of Communications for the National Union of Students after graduating from The University of Wales (Swansea) and then moved into broadcasting, working first in local radio.

He joined the BBC in 1984, starting as a TV producer in Norwich, then as a reporter based at the House of Commons.

He has worked on Newsnight, TV news bulletins, Breakfast News and a host of TV news specials.

He organised BBC TV's 'morning-after' coverage of the 1992 General Election.

Barney devised, piloted and produced a new BBC ONE Sunday morning programme starting in January 1993 - Breakfast With Frost, presented by Sir David Frost - which he edited throughout its run.
From 2005 until 2015 Barney Jones was the Editor of Breakfast with Frost's successor, Sunday AM presented by Andrew Marr.

He produced interviews conducted inside the White House, 10 and 11 Downing Street, Buckingham Palace, The Kremlin and the Elysee Palace and produced live programmes from Johannesburg, Hong Kong, inside a maximum security prison and on board the QE2.

Career highlights include setting up a joint interview with Bill Clinton and Tony Blair, getting Elton John into the studio the morning after he played Candle in the Wind at Princess Diana's funeral, and getting Nelson Mandela dancing in the Breakfast With Frost studio at the end of his interview.

Barney lives in North London in the shadow of the former Arsenal stadium and, apart from his family, his main interests are British politics, old houses and rock music.
