A novelist's life ricochets from 1920s Paris to '50s New York and '80s London. Along the way he meets Ernest Hemingway, Ian Fleming and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor - the exiled British king and his mistress Wallis Simpson.
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
Just before Urban Mahy's funeral a German soldier tries to chat up one of the daughters, asking her is she'll be his 'Pennsylvania 65000'. He couldn't have known that Glenn Miller tune, as it only became known in Europe after the USA entered the war in Europe, which was officially 18 months later (and effectively even later than that).

An excellent drama, well acted and very entertaining. The actors have avoided the usual stereotypes often found in dramas concerning with war, portraying their characters as having different sides to them and not one dimensional human being.
Although it is, in some ways, unfair to single out any one performance I have to say that Philip Glenister and James Wilby have been particularly great. Two men on opposite sides, Philip Glenister's character appears strong and James Wilby's character would appear to be the weaker of the two.
However, they are probably more alike than either would care to admit. Two very compelling performances.
Congratulations to all those involved in this production, hope to see another series.
