It is the swinging sixties. After he retires from politics, Churchill enjoys the glamorous lifestyle his enormous fame makes possible. But this endangers his legacy. On top of that, his grandiose and imperial attitude grates in this era of egalitarianism and decolonisation. But then comes Churchill’s funeral, an epic commemoration which bids to seal his place in history.
This is the story of the man behind the myth. Using rarely seen footage, personal photographs… and told by those who knew him well.
