TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 10 December 2011
I watched this series on television when it was first shown and before having a Sky box which cleverly records a series without my having to remember; I missed a few and bought this to catch up.

Prior to the series, I had never thought much about what is now obvious - Churchill's need for a bodyguard. Always a contentious figure, he made many enemies. These four DVDs covering their nineteen years together, narrated by Robert Powell, is the story of Walter Thompson's time with Churchill and the times they lived through, sometimes only just, thanks to Thompson. It is from his daily diary which Churchill agreed could be published and the DVDs are made up of mostly original footage.

For anyone with an interest in WWII or Churchill, this is essential viewing. Follow this with a visit to the Cabinet War Rooms to create a real impression of the times and conditions in which they lived in Whitehall to gain a full insight into the distances they travelled, one of the excellent displays.
