        MEDIA IN GUERNSEY              
                                       
    The Bailiwick is served by three

 weekly summary of events is published 
 on a Saturday. This paper is          
 frequently sent to expatriots as a    
 means of keeping in touch with island

 as well as the Bailiwick. Programmes  
 are broadcast from that island, but   
 some are made at the local studio. In

 Guernsey has the distinction of the   
 largest listening percentage in the   
 British Isles.
