When I'm sick of Radio 4, I occasionally listen to this. No modern politician that I can think of can compare with Churchill; he makes you realize just how poor at speaking many of them are.
Of course he had far more dramatic subject-matter. And this CD helps you to imagine what it must have been like in the war, when you might have listened to some of these speeches on the wireless. They can be very moving.

Some of them are read by Mr Winston S. Churchill - Sir Winston's grandson - because recordings of the man himself couldn't be found. Also I've noticed in the bookshop you can buy this CD as one in a set of three.

I HAVE ALWAYS ADMIRED WINSTON CHURCHILL.EVEN MORE SO NOW I HAVE LISTENED
TO THIS CD.
THE NARRATOR TELLS THE BACKGROUND BEHIND THE SPEECH AND YOU ARE DRAWN INTO A WORLD WE CAN ONLY IMAGINE ,IT SUMS UP THE BULLDOG SPIRIT OF OUR NATION AND FILLS YOU WITH AN ENORMOUS PATRIOTIC PRIDE.
NEVER FORGET THE SACRIFICES MADE BY SO MANY PEOPLE TO ENSURE OUR FREEDOM.
QUITE WHAT WINSTON WOULD HAVE MADE OF THE PEOPLE IN POWER NOW LORD ONLY KNOWS?

I have always liked history and found great pleasure in hearing the speeches of Sir Winston Churchill. I recommend this CD to anyone with interest in modern British history.
