The film is a 30 minute journey through Guernsey’s long and fascinating history. It traces the island’s development from an agricultural economy through quarrying, shipbuilding, tourism and tomatoes and the long dark days of the Occupation to the emergence of the finance industry as the mainstay of the economy. Featuring many of the island’s famous citizens, past and present, who have made their names on the world stage, the film uses high quality photography throughout, combined with rare archive footage.

Following are two of the many endorsements received:
“The film is a whistle-stop tour through the history of Guernsey, featuring animation, old photographs, modern-day location shots and stunning drone footage, while a friendly, authoritative narrator links everything together concisely”. The Guernsey Press

“The film is well-produced, interesting, enjoyable to watch and introduces its viewers to the history, richness and originality of Guernsey. I am sure that the DVD is partially responsible for the great increase in visitors that we have had during the year to see the William Morris windows” (which are featured in the film).
