Churchill Previous Broadcasts

The Lion's Roar (Episode #102Z)

KQED 9: Sun, Aug 25, 2013 -- 8:00 PM

The second hour focuses on the 10 years between 1929 and 1939, which have become widely known as the "Wilderness Years" during which Churchill was variously described as a "maverick", a "spent force" and a "fanatic". But then, through a remarkable set of circumstances, the war years from 1939 to 1945 became the most famous period in his amazing life. "The Lion's Roar" traces Churchill's leadership of Britain through its finest hour during the Battle of Britain to its darkest hour in 1942. His character was tested at every moment of the war. His famous speeches evoked everything about Britain that he thought was great, and so galvanized the nation.

Destiny (Episode #101Z)

KQED 9: Sun, Aug 18, 2013 -- 8:00 PM

This first hour tells the story of Churchill's early life -- his aristocratic birth, his search for glory on the battlefield, his rise up the political ladder and his fall from it. It follows his journey from being a young Conservative star to a leading Liberal social reformer, from the disgraced head of the British Royal Navy in WWI to the senior position of Chancellor of the Exchequer. This episode ends in 1931, when Churchill is left out of the national government, and his career seems to be over and his destiny unfulfilled.
