Good evening, I'm Charlie McArdle, welcome to BBC Channel Islands.

:00:10.:00:11.

The remedy for a shortage of doctors - a change in the law means

:00:12.:00:16.

Jersey could soon have home-grown GPs.

:00:17.:00:17.

Visitor numbers are up in Guernsey, but transport

:00:18.:00:19.

There are some really good increases this year. But when we do refer back

:00:20.:00:31.

to 2015, we can see there is some way to go.

:00:32.:00:34.

And schoolchildren raise the roof for the BBC Ten Pieces Orchestra.

:00:35.:00:44.

Political moves are underfoot to avoid a

:00:45.:00:46.

The Health Minister wants to change the law to allow GPs to train

:00:47.:00:53.

at surgeries on the island before they qualify,

:00:54.:00:56.

so they can fill posts when doctors retire.

:00:57.:00:58.

It takes years of study and training to become a Dr. And would be GPs

:00:59.:01:12.

have gone to the UK or further afield before they have qualified.

:01:13.:01:16.

In Jersey, work is being done to attract the next oration of doctors,

:01:17.:01:20.

and make sure they're ready to fill the shoes of GPs who are preparing

:01:21.:01:26.

to retire. We note that eventually Alderney GPs will be retiring. From

:01:27.:01:31.

experience, we are training nurses locally, that if you train them

:01:32.:01:35.

luckily, they tend to stay locally. But we have no provision for

:01:36.:01:40.

training GPs at the present time, other than the rotational, where

:01:41.:01:43.

they get a tasting during their training. So it's absolutely about

:01:44.:01:47.

succession planning for GP service going forward. Trainee GPs would

:01:48.:01:53.

work alongside qualified GPs developing a relationship with

:01:54.:01:59.

patients. But sing a trainee would not mean a cut-price appointment.

:02:00.:02:05.

When you have a trainee, they had to be closely supervised. This in with

:02:06.:02:11.

dentists. So it is not that they would be charged less, no. GPs in

:02:12.:02:17.

Jersey nurture the relationship tween doctor and patience, and it is

:02:18.:02:21.

hoped these values will appeal to the next generation of doctors. The

:02:22.:02:25.

voice we hope to nurture our own, there are a people who want to get a

:02:26.:02:34.

taste of the way we do things here. It's suddenly old-fashioned, but in

:02:35.:02:38.

my view, much better approach to patients. It is hoped that by

:02:39.:02:43.

allowing the doctors of the future to hone their skills on the islands,

:02:44.:02:46.

any potential problems can be avoided.

:02:47.:02:50.

Guernsey's airport declared a full emergency this morning

:02:51.:02:52.

when a private plane reported smoke in its cockpit.

:02:53.:02:54.

The single-engine aircraft was flying from the UK to Jersey

:02:55.:02:56.

when it had to make an emergency landing in Guernsey.

:02:57.:02:59.

The airport's general manager said the plane arrived safely

:03:00.:03:01.

Jersey voters can have their say on the island's proposed

:03:02.:03:08.

The creation of six so-called super constituencies will be debated

:03:09.:03:15.

But a scrutiny panel is holding meetings ahead of that to find out

:03:16.:03:20.

The first one will be at St Saviour's Parish Hall

:03:21.:03:25.

Jersey's States garden nursery, which was considered as a potential

:03:26.:03:32.

site for the future hospital, has been put out to lease.

:03:33.:03:35.

Warwick Farm grew plants for the islands parks and gardens,

:03:36.:03:39.

but now most of that work has been passed to private companies.

:03:40.:03:43.

A spokesperson from property holdings says rather than let it

:03:44.:03:46.

fall into disrepair, the States would rather

:03:47.:03:49.

rent it out to a farmer or grower who could make use of it.

:03:50.:03:53.

The lease is available for nine years while the States decide

:03:54.:03:56.

A boost in business travellers has led to an increase

:03:57.:04:06.

There's been a rise of 2000 people in the first quarter of this year

:04:07.:04:12.

But officials say more improvements are needed.

:04:13.:04:15.

A busy morning in Guernsey's tourist information centre. And for these

:04:16.:04:29.

visitors, a few comments on the island to take on board. It is

:04:30.:04:39.

costly. When we think of travelling, we're always trying to fit Guernsey

:04:40.:04:43.

in, it is not micro that easy, because it's not a stop of place to

:04:44.:04:50.

other locations. We came across on the ferry. It was lovely. So far.

:04:51.:04:58.

The latest Government surveys shows there has been a 7%increase in

:04:59.:05:03.

visitors, with just over 2000 more people for the year compared to

:05:04.:05:07.

2016. The number of visitors visiting by sea has increased. The

:05:08.:05:14.

economic development committee was cautious in welcoming the increase.

:05:15.:05:19.

Some really good increases this year, but on the refer back to 2015,

:05:20.:05:25.

there is still some way to go. Some say that transport remains a

:05:26.:05:30.

concern. The loss of GDP to the island is entirely significant. From

:05:31.:05:35.

the bar 2014, it is over 40,000 passengers. Eddie asked for the

:05:36.:05:43.

development in GDP terms, it is around ?500. That puts the GDP value

:05:44.:05:52.

at around ?20 million. This coincides with Sark's greatest

:05:53.:05:58.

tourism survey. With there renewed confidence, could the real prospect

:05:59.:06:06.

of a new ferry, the Bailiwick's heading in the right direction. But

:06:07.:06:12.

still has some way to go to get to the numbers of the past.

:06:13.:06:14.

There are calls to return the remains of a Nazi concentration

:06:15.:06:16.

camp survivor home to Jersey after his grave was found

:06:17.:06:19.

Frank Le Villio was deported during the occupation

:06:20.:06:22.

for taking a joyride on a German officer's motorbike.

:06:23.:06:24.

He died in England in 1946 from tuberculosis.

:06:25.:06:28.

Mr Le Villio was buried in a pauper's grave.

:06:29.:06:30.

The Constables of St Helier and St Saviour hope to bring him

:06:31.:06:34.

back home, but it could be a difficult process

:06:35.:06:37.

The people of Guernsey now formally own the Little Chapel,

:06:38.:06:46.

one of the island's most famous tourist attractions.

:06:47.:06:48.

The Little Chapel Foundation bought the property deeds today,

:06:49.:06:51.

along with a parcel of land nearby, for ?1.

:06:52.:06:53.

More investment is planned for the site in the future,

:06:54.:06:55.

including improved disabled access and a visitor centre.

:06:56.:06:59.

The Foundation says today is an important milestone

:07:00.:07:01.

for the restoration of the attraction.

:07:02.:07:08.

We have been working on the chapel and doing a lot of work to preserve

:07:09.:07:15.

it. But know the people Guernsey own it, it's entrust with the Foundation

:07:16.:07:20.

to properly looked after it. We can go forward with that ownership. We

:07:21.:07:25.

can put a proper business plan in place.

:07:26.:07:26.

You're watching the BBC in the Channel Islands.

:07:27.:07:28.

Later in Spotlight with Justin and Natalie:

:07:29.:07:29.

The sale of the century - a farmer's collection of 90 tractors

:07:30.:07:32.

Over 1000 primary school pupils in Jersey

:07:33.:07:41.

are being introduced to classical music this week.

:07:42.:07:43.

The BBC Ten Pieces Orchestra is playing concerts as part

:07:44.:07:46.

By holding free workshops for children, it's hoped

:07:47.:07:49.

a new generation will learn to love the music genre.

:07:50.:07:53.

We sent our camera's along to a packed Opera House

:07:54.:07:55.

Today, we've had two of the three BBC Ten Pieces concerts. It very

:07:56.:08:16.

exciting series in which children learn about music, classical news.

:08:17.:08:24.

We learn about all the estimates of the orchestra. We had then all on

stage. They got to hear the instruments,

:08:28.:08:36.

they got to meet the people who play them.

:08:37.:08:42.

And also they got to hear some of the most exciting and diverse pieces

:08:43.:08:52.

of classical music that there are. So it's just a really great

:08:53.:08:57.

introduction for children to hear all the different characters and

:08:58.:08:59.

different things that classical music can do. It was really, really

:09:00.:09:06.

good. I liked how the instruments are played different chains in

:09:07.:09:11.

different ways. -- genes in different ways.
