Secrets Beyond the Screen The award-winning TV producer's compelling search for truth

AUTHOR: Anita Jacoby

How well does anyone know their family?

Anita Jacoby AM is one of Australia’s most distinguished television producers. Now she uncovers one of the most extraordinary stories of all, long hidden within her own family.

The father Anita knew had fled persecution in Nazi Germany to settle in Australia and become a pioneer of the Australian communications industry. He was known and respected in the entertainment,  political and business worlds.

But he also had a devastating secret life.

In her quest to establish the truth, Anita combines being a loving daughter with her investigative journalist skills,  determined to find everything concealed from her family for more than seventy years. But by turning the camera on her father she’s forced to question everything about him – and what she thought she knew about herself. 

And in discovering his secrets, she’s compelled to reveal her own.

This very Australian story is one of tragedy and rebirth, resilience and change. It’s about love, grief, and the sacrifices parents make for their children. It’s a story that proves that children, no matter how old or wise they become, never truly know their parents.
