Masterpiece Episode: "Island at War: Episode 1"

Season 35, Episode 3
Episode Synopsis: “Island at War,” a five-part series that takes events that actually happened in Britain's Channel Islands during World War II and weaves them into a tapestry of resistance. Part 1 begins in 1940. The Nazis occupy France. Eight miles offshore, tensions mount on undefended St. Gregory's Island. Then the Luftwaffe strafes the harbor, killing 12 civilians. Occupying troops soon follow. Their commandant (Philip Glenister) doesn't seem to be a brute, but he hasn't been crossed yet.

Its many memorable productions include `Upstairs, Downstairs,' `I, Claudius,' 'The Jewel in the Crown,' `House of Cards,' `Poldark' and `Prime Suspect.'
