Gannet colony features on Liar

Posted Tue 10th October 2017 at 10:29

Alderney's gannet colony guest starred in ITV's hottest new drama series this week.

The smash hit series Liar has had nearly £5m people glued to their sofas over the last month.

It's a did he/ didn't he five episode suspense about a charming but sinister surgeon called Andrew Earlham - played by Ioan Gruffudd - who drugged and date raped Laura Nielson, played by Joanne Frogatt.

In the last episode the pregnant investigating police officer, DI Vanessa Hormon, was shown relaxing with a healthy drink, watching a nature documentary on TV, unaware that her smoothie had been spiked and that Earlham was about to attack her.

Eagle-eyed viewers spotted that the documentary she was watching was the inside track on Alderney's gannet colonies on Les Etacs - and it was no co-incidence.

The producer of the show is high flying Eliza Mellor, the daughter of residents Stephen and Diana Mellor, who own Fort Corbletts.

Alderney Wildlife Trust manager Roland Gauvain explained that she wanted the character to be watching a nature documentary and specifically wanted to bring Alderney into the programme. So she contacted AWT and asked if they could send footage of gannets and written material for the 'documentary' narrator's voiceover.

Wildlife photographer Bill Black recorded shots of the gannet colony on Les Etacs.

"The documentary on Liar was mocked up from footage and dialogue provided by us, specifically bring Alderney into the programme, all thanks to Eliza Mellor," said Mr Gauvain.

Liar pulled in 4.86 million viewers this week and another 450,000 watched on ITV + 1.
