Series of radio programmes entitled 'Memories of the Occupation' produced by the Channel Islands Educational Broadcasting Service. Original reference: Series U2. The series was first broadcast in the autumn of 1980 and looks at life during the occupation through the eyes of a Guernsey family. The family and all situations which are narrated or dramatized are all based on fact. Characters used in the dramatised scenes are as follows: Narrator - who is mainly used to introduce each episode; Lily - the mother of the fictitious family, she is used to link most of the dramatic scenes and give extra information not already contained in those scenes; Gunther - a German soldier billeted next door to Lily, through the medium of letters home to his family he gives the German viewpoint. Restricted communications during the occupation meant that news from the other islands was almost always received late and often by hearsay, so events which actually happpen simultaneously in different islands may be mentioned in different episodes. The series was produced by Alan Middleton.
