Guernsey's "most colourful residents" to feature in new TV show

Thursday 08 June 2023

The lives of some of the Channel Islands' "most colourful residents" will be explored in a new TV show narrated by Alan Titchmarsh launching next week.

'Jersey & Guernsey' is a new show produced by UK television company Daisy Beck studios that will air on Channel 5.

Daisybeck are the producers of 'The Highland Vet', 'The Yorkshire Vet', 'Our Great Yorkshire Life' and 'On the Farm'.

Promising to "delve into the lives of some of the islands' most colourful residents", the show will feature the operator of Guernsey's Petit Train, Andy Furniss and the work of Guernsey's animal rescue charity, the GSPCA.

Lord of the Manor Peter de Sausmarez is also set to make an appearance.

Visit Guernsey said the six part series will be "celebrating the stunningly beautiful Channel Islands".

The promotional body for Guernsey's tourism sector has been working with the production crew over recent months, including introducing them to "some of our islands' wonderful residents whose families have lived here for generations".

From Jersey, eighth generation farmer Phil Le Maistre, makers of La Robeline Cider Richard and Sarah Matlock, ceramicist Claire Haithwaite, and the Sprouts Farm Club team will all appear.

The La Robeline duo said that "the sun shone" during filming, "so hopefully our beautiful island looks as glorious as she is and entices lots of people to book to come and experience our unique and lovely way of life for themselves for a few days".

'Jersey & Guernsey' will be on Channel 5 every Thursday, starting on 15 June.
