No more Island Hospital

Post by GD on Wed 09 Jan 2013, 6:26 pm

A second series of Island Hospital will not be appearing on Channel Islanders' screens any time soon.

Maverick TV has just announced that ITV has decided not commission another series.

It produced 12 episodes for the Friday night slot at 8pm, which had more than three million viewers per episode.

The series, which took six months to film, finished before Christmas.

Maverick TV head of factual Mark Downie said it had had a good run but competition from other programme makers was fierce and ITV had decided it wanted something different in the slot.

"We're delighted with the feedback we've had from the people of Guernsey - pubs, estate agents and hotels who featured on the programme said they were inundated with calls afterwards from people wanting to visit.

"Hopefully it will be a real boost to Guernsey."

......THE BOSS......

"Always be yourself because the people who mind don't matter, and the people who matter don't mind"
