Did You Know?

Goofs:
Anachronisms: 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 »

Brilliant, 6 May 2005
Author: michelecrosby from United States

This was the best mini-series I have ever seen. I began watching in the middle of episode 2 after my husband kept saying "You should really see this." By episode 3 I was hooked. The storyline is very intense without being crude, graphic or gory. The setting is absolutely gorgeous. The acting and dialog are brilliant. Each character is multi-dimensional and well developed with credit due to the incredibly honest writing of Stephen Mallatratt and the skill of the actors in bringing that writing to life. I felt like I was there.

I never knew about the Nazi occupation of the Channel Islands until I saw this. There have been some complaints that the series is not historically accurate, but this is not meant to be a documentary; it is a fictional drama. A drama with teeth though - many of the characters wrestle with moral and ideological dilemmas that leave you thinking. It's also just plain fun.
