    Philip Glenister, Saksia Reeves, James Wilby, Clare Holman and Downton Abbey's Joanne Froggatt feature among an outstanding cast in this exceptional six-part drama set in the Channel Islands during World War II. Written by Stephen Mallatratt – best known for his iconic staging of Susan Hill's The Woman in Black – Island at War is set on the fictional St. Gregory but based on real events from the 1940s, and explores the moral conflict and hardship that became part of everyday life for the Islanders under occupation.

    The German invasion begins brutally – with a bombing raid that kills many islanders – before troops move in to occupy the towns and villages. Determined to maintain control, Oberst Baron von Rheingarten makes it clear to the islanders that all freedoms are restricted; a curfew is imposed, transport is limited to cycling, homes are requisitioned and Jews are forced to attempt to escape or conceal their identity. The islanders struggle to decipher right and wrong in this strange situation where both friend and foe must live side by side – at times, quite literally...
