Digital Planet is back on The island of Jersey, the small English speaking island off the coast of France.
We’re travelling around in an on-demand electric vehicle – all booked, paid for and locked and unlocked with an app from our smartphones and looking at Jersey Technology.
We’re finding out about agricultural tech on a dairy farm – how the famous Jersey Cows, that produce premium milk – are being managed by the latest innovations and we’re also out in the fields where a host of sensors and data analytics are helping with the Jersey potato harvest.
And if that is not enough we visit the remote control tower at St. Helier airport and see how remote airfields around the world are beginning to embrace this technology, pioneered in Jersey, to make flying to seldom used airports safer.
Guests include Gavin Breeze, Director of Evie, Air traffic controllers Marc Hill and Richard Mayne, Jersey Cow Girl Becky Houzé and Mike Renouard, Business Unit Director at the Jersey Royal Company.
The programme is presented by Gareth Mitchell with expert commentary from Bill Thompson. Producer: Ania Lichtarowicz
