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

Appalling Misrepresentation
6 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Much is missing or misrepresented in this series. 1. How did the Germans land troops on the Islands? 2. Why do we never see the Mosleyites (British Fascists) who were there to greet the Germans arrival? 2b. Were there really no anti-Semites among the Islanders? 2c. Why do we never meet any of the French-speaking Islanders? 3. How come no one ever is seen listening to the radio (which every ear was glued to throughout the war)? 3b. Why did neither of the two boys who allegedly came to spy bring a radio with them? 4. How come we never see anyone fishing off the rocks or fishing from a dingy (neither of which was prevented by the occupying forces). Instead we are told the Islanders are desperate for tinned salmon.
