This is a biographical sketch of Churchill, created from a collection of audio material held in the BBC Archives. Some of the recordings from early 1900s are anecdotes from people who knew him at that time and are naturally quite dated. The recording and story-telling quality improves as it progresses. This is an interesting audio collection that provides an excellent and entertaining portrait of Churchill that is a combination of personal, political and picturesque. I enjoyed this much more than I thought I would. The personal accounts and news annoucements made the iconic Churchill, as well as the times, very real. Tim Piggott-Smith provides an excellent presentation. ( )
