Drama series set amid the German occupation of the fictional Channel Island of St Gregory in 1940. News of the imminent invasion reaches the islanders, who rush to prepare for the arrival. Policeman Wilf Jonas and his wife Kathleen decide to send their children to England, but son Colin has other ideas, while grocer Urban Mahy is left a photography shop by a fleeing Jewish neighbour and immediately rushes down to the harbour to catch all of the action on camera - with tragic consequences. Starring James Wilby, Clare Holman, Philip Glenister and Saskia Reeves.
