    Churchill’s Enduring Magnetism in a Disoriented World

    Winston Churchill, a two-DVD set from The History Channel, will delight both connoisseurs and neophytes. Archival footage, interviews with people who knew Churchill and, last but not least, narrative by Winston’s official biographer Martin Gilbert make this series stand out among the visual productions dedicated to Churchill. Gilbert makes Churchill accessible to a wide audience by keeping his narrative both erudite and lighthearted. In Volume I, Gilbert opts for a chronological approach to his subject. Describing Churchill, however, is tricky. First, Churchill, either in turn or concomitantly, was a journalist, historian, soldier, painter, and statesman. Furthermore, as one of his early conquests noted in 1905, “The first time you meet Winston, you see all his faults, and the rest of your life you spend in discovering his virtues.” Churchill embodied over time vision and foresight, humanity and sense of fair play, democracy and patriotism, formidable powers of work and thought, as well as controversy, disappointment and abuse. To his credit, Gilbert clearly narrates the ups and downs in his tumultuous career. Many people, who are unfamiliar with Churchill’s biography, can be forgiven for ignoring the many setbacks that Churchill experienced in his early career before finally becoming the iconic figure for which he is generally known today. Sometimes, Churchill was his worst enemy because of his own excesses. In Volume II, James Faulkner focuses on the workings of the war room from where Churchill led the war against the Axis powers. John Daly then covers the presidency of Franklin Roosevelt and the special relationship that Roosevelt developed with Churchill during WWII. Volume I will probably enthrall more than Volume II because of the stature of its narrator. To summarize, Winston Churchill ranks among the best productions ever made for a broad audience.
