I was not expecting to like this documentary as much as I did, as it didn't seem as interesting a subject until I began watching it. This documentary details how Churchill spent much of his time before , during, and directly after World War 2 when he lost the re election for Prime Minister in 1945? or 46? and gives great insight into his personal character, mannerisms, and thoughts before, during the war as well as afterwards as he unexpectedly had to leave Downing Street. From my understanding, his personal bodyguard, Walter H. Thompson, wrote a book (from which this documentary is based on) some years after WW2, despite Churchill's and Scotland Yard's protests and even threats to take away his retirement pension if he published the book in the 1950s and it became an instantaneous "best seller" which made him lots of money as he also became famous and traveled around Britain to give many lectures on Churchill and his time as his bodyguard .I actually learned more about Winston Churchill through this documentary than I would have learned by reading his OWN account of his career or his auto biography or other biographies on him i am sure.
Highy Recommend this as it is objective, informative, very nicely presented, and is 13 hours long too to also make it a nice bargain.
