"I just viewed this three-part PBS program last night, was pleasantly surprised by it's excellent content, and just had to make a few comments about it.
Churchill's granddaughter, Celia Sandys, takes us on an inspiring, well-produced travel log-type documentary as she visits some of the places around the world her grandfather traveled to throughout his life. I've studied the achievements of this amazing leader for years now, yet I learned many new and interesting facts previously unknown to me as a result of this program. Even the background musical soundtrack was outstanding.
It would be well worth devoting three hours of your viewing time to learn about this Titan of world leadership. After seeing this wonderful program, I couldn't help but think how desperately the present world needs visionary statesmen of Churchill's caliber.
Let us all be grateful for the foresighted statesmanship of this remarkable man - and learn from the example he set in this area. The lessons gleaned are as applicable and relevant now as they were then, and even more so as we face the daunting challenges of the 21st century."

"Just saw on PBS and was awed by the beauty of this story. It is not only a great travelogue, but a beautiful tribute to perhaps the greatest leader of the 20th Century."
