Industrial Junkie

Discovery & Quest, 8 x 1hr episodes, 2008


Born into a family of engineers, Jonny’s Industrial Junkie was a series where he took viewers on the journey of huge industrial processes that are critical to our everyday lives. With exceptional access to Europe’s biggest industries, Jonny worked dangerously close to the extraordinary machines and amazing processes involved in producing the likes of petrol, cardboard packaging, paint and glass.


In each graphic-laden episode he gets his hands dirty trying a variety of tough jobs along the production chain. As well as bringing viewers a unique insight into key industries such as coal and steel, he banters with the human characters and controls the mechanical monsters that make it all happen. One of the debut shows for Quest.
