John Nettles and the threatening letters

Post by GD on Sat 20 Nov 2010, 12:41 am



Actor John Nettles at the Jersey War Tunnels

THREATENING letters were sent to Bergerac actor John Nettles after he filmed a three-part documentary about the Occupation of the Channel Islands.
The actor revealed that he had received letters from disgruntled Islanders in Guernsey who called his programme, The Channel Islands at War, a ‘disgrace’, claiming that it implied that Islanders were collaborators and cowardly during the Occupation.
One of the letters said that he should never show his face in the islands again.
Mr Nettles is in Jersey for tonight’s launch of the DVD of the programme, which was screened on the Yesterday channel in June, and covers the invasion, occupation and liberation of the Channel Islands. (from CTV)

I would have worked to keep my family fed as well .i could not have seen the starve to death like many did
my father was here ,he was a young lad and said many of the Germans were very kind and they also did not want to be here but had to .
