Time Team en Jèrri - Time Team in Jersey

Nou nos pâlit entouor l'histouaithe et la tchultuthe dé Jèrri quand nou' 'tait à plianner les dêfouithies d'Time Team l'année pâssée. Ch'est Dînmanche au sé qu'nou-s'êtrueûl'la l'preunmié progranme (épis en r'jouôthie sus 4OD).

We were consulted for historical and cultural background during the planning of last year's Time Team digs. The first programme is to be broadcast on Sunday (available on watch again via 4OD).

Episode 4 - Hitler's Island Fortress

And, unlike with older sites, the Team can talk to people who witnessed life under the occupation at first hand.

What emerges is the shocking story of a fortress island where German installations were built by slave labour and the local population began to starve as the war continued. Of terrible conditions that seem more fitting to the eras the Team usually investigate, rather than just 70 years ago.

Over three days Time Team uncover a fascinating and frequently horrifying glimpse of life during war.
