During his childhood at Blenheim Palace, Churchill is reported to have stated that he would one day become Prime Minister and he duly achieved his aim aged 65. However, the determination and doggedness which marked Churchill out from his peers was both a strength and a weakness.

This three-part documentary follows the highs and lows of Churchill's personal, military and political life and gives us a new insight into the man.
