The definitive biography on an am
10 January 2012 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Despite being one of the most important figures of the 20th century, there haven't been that many excellent biographies on Winston Churchill or they only focused on a small portion of his life. Here in "Churchill" you get his whole life and there isn't anything to complain about...except that like ALL PBS DVDs, there are no captions. Considering I am slightly hard of hearing and my youngest daughter is deaf, it is frustrating. But, I can't fault the folks who made this film--it is top-notch.

The story is broken into three segments. Part one is his early life up to about WWII. Part two is WWII. Part three is the latter portion of WWII as well as his life after the war up to his death. The story is narrated very capably by Sir Ian McKlellan and is full of nice interviews with his family, secretaries and various smart folks. All of it is very interesting, though I must admit some of the latter parts are a bit sad. See this one.
