The Channel Islands At War

Marking the 70th anniversary of the German invasion and occupation of the Channel Islands, the Yesterday programme travels across the Channel to revisit a World War II story often forgotten.

This brand-new and exclusive series, written and presented by Midsomer Murders star John Nettles, is an emotional examination of both the invasion and occupation, as well as the legacy it left behind.

From June 1940, when the Nazis arrived, until May 1945, the inhabitants of Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney and Sark lived through five years of oppression, terror, collaboration and near starvation that left an indelible scar that’s still evident 70 years later.

John’s journey takes him to places that still bear witness to the war and to hear stories of courage, outrage and deprivation from those who lived through the horrifying experience.
The new 3 part documentary series starts Monday, 28 June for 3 nights at 22:00 on Sky 537, Virgin Media 203, Freeview 12.
