Bergerac stars roll back the years with fans in Jersey

The stars of classic detective drama Bergerac have returned to Jersey to share stories of their time on the series.

John Nettles who played the title role and Sean Arnold, who played Superintendent Barney Crozier, attended a book signing for Mr Arnold’s new book Anton Myst at Jersey Museum & Art Gallery.

Islanders who had previously appeared as extras in the series were invited to bring memorabilia and photographs and share their experiences of being part of the show.

The drama, which was primarily set and filmed in Jersey, has become an important part of the island’s culture. It ran for nine series between 1981 and 1991.

Earlier this year it was announced that a reboot of the series is in the works. Economic Development Minister, Senator Lyndon Farnham said it could be worth as much as £4 million to Jersey’s economy and that he would do everything in his power to ensure it was filmed on the island.
