This is a 2-DVD 1991 collection from the History Channel. It contains a four-part biography of Winston Churchill (British Prime Minister during WWII), as researched and narrated by Sir Martin Gilbert, the acclaimed historian and Churchillâs official biographer. Each episode is one hour long and is presented without subtitles. This is by far the most definitive video biography I have ever seen on Churchill, and I collect them.
The collection also included two additional 45-minutes features; the 1996 âChurchill & The Cabinet War Roomsâ - a previously unreleased on DVD special relying heavily on rare news reel footage to paint a portrait of British life during the war, and the Season 1, Episode 14 offering of Biographyâs âF.D.R. -The War Yearsâ, which does much the same for America.

He was an uninspired student who won the Nobel Prize for literature. He failed military school examinations twice--and then became Lord of the Admiralty. A disastrous decision during World War I threatened to ruin his political career, but he was named Prime Minister of Britain in 1940.
The programs in this encyclopedic collection explore Winston Churchill's extraordinary life and monumental legacy. Written and hosted by his official biographer, Sir Martin Gilbert, The Complete Churchill is the landmark profile from A&E's acclaimed BIOGRAPHYÂ® series. Churchill and the Cabinet War Rooms recreates the secret meetings where he orchestrated British strategy during World War II. And FDR: The War Years offers an intimate glimpse of Churchill's relationship with his most important ally.
