    The Channel Islands’ last witch trial

    Amy Lake stands trial for witchcraft and setting a mortal curse on her neighbour in the run-up to the First World War, Alfred Hitchcock has reason to be grateful for a surprising Jersey connection, and an oil rig on its way to South America washes up on Guernsey's coast. Guernsey politicians unveil plans for a new airport, and Jersey Airways offers to cover the cost of construction - but only if it can have a monopoly on landing and taking off there. Politicians in Jersey meet to decide whether they want a commercial or BBC radio station, and Isaac Newton gives a Guernsey inventor's device the once-over... before it's lost for ever.
