View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This book is a fascinating collection of the biggest news events ever to hit the Channel Islands. The stories include the Shipwrecks of the 'Stella' in 1899 as well as the Channiland 'St Malo' in 1995. We also look at the Beast of Jersey's 12 year reign of terror in the 1960s and 70s to the Great Storm, the Newall Murders and Jambo the Lowland Gorilla in the 1980s. These are just a few of the reasons why the eyes of the world have turned to our Islands, as you will see. All the stories related here have one thing in common: they were all major events in their time and would have been the main topics of conversation in the Islands, as well as hitting the local, national or international headlines. Here we record and look back at 'the stories that shocked the Islands' at various times in our turbulent past giving you an insight into just some of the extraordinary events that these Islands have witnessed over the years.
