Storyline

Set during the occupation of the Channel Islands during World War II. The story shows how Island life changed overnight after a German invasion. Islanders were restricted to walking and cycling, town names were changed to German names, clocks were set to continental time, and no society could meet without the permission of German High Command. The focus is on three families, the Dorrs, the Jonases and the Mahys, as they struggle on with day to day life under the restrictive new system. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

One of the daughters sings in the nightclub at the beginning "Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree." It wasn't written then, and not until 1942. Further, its entire message is from an American girl to her American GI during the war. That apple tree is somewhere in rural America. Not in the Channel Islands. This scene takes places a year or two prior to America even entering the war. See more »

Absolutely Marvelous!!
20 September 2004 | by (wilmslow, cheshire) – See all my reviews

I can't believe how anyone can critisise this excellent drama. It has been the highlight of my year as far as the television is concerned. ITV have done themselves proud considering the rubbish and repeats they usually churn out! The cast was superb with acclaimed actors such as Philip Glenister of 'Vanity Fair' and 'The other bolyn girl', Joanne Frogatt who has come along way since Coronation Street and Edward Fox's nephew Laurence Fox.

The settings, the backing music and the story lines all fitted together perfectly, i just hope ITV take on board the great amount of praise they have received for this drama and commission a second series!!
