A CHANNEL TV crew was filming at the Guernsey Press yesterday for a report to mark the newspaper's 200th birthday.

This weekend sees the island's daily newspaper reach its bicentennial. To celebrate the Guernsey Press and Star's historic milestone, stories and features have been running throughout the whole of our birthday month.

The series culminates in a special edition tomorrow, with a 24-page supplement that includes a four-page reproduction of the very first edition of The Star in 1813.

It will also feature archive pictures and  stories, as well as news about a special set of Guernsey Press commemorative stamps.

The TV crew interviewed editorial and printing staff at the company's Braye Road headquarters.

Guernsey Press editor Richard Digard said: 'We are delighted to be celebrating this historic moment in the story of Guernsey's newspaper. It is an amazing achievement both for the title and the island.'
