Jersey'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 appearances from eighth generation Jersey farmer Phil Le Maistre, makers of La Robeline Cider Richard and Sarah Matlock, ceramicist Claire Haithwaite, the Jersey Tea Company, as well as the Sprouts Farm Club team.

The operator of Guernsey's Petit Train, Andy Furniss, is also set to make an appearance, as is Lord of the Manor Peter de Sausmarez. 

The work of Guernsey's animal rescue charity, the GSPCA, will also feature.

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."

The Jersey Tea company mentioned on their Facebook page that they spent a total of two days filming with the team from Daisybeck, for an estimated 8 minutes of total screen time. 

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