In almost any piece of film you'll see of Britain's great wartime leader, he is the man in the background anonymous and secret. Until now his critical role in saving the life of Churchill from a series of attacks has been hidden from the wider public. After the war Walter Thompson's censored book told just part of the story. His full memoirs were suppressed even by Churchill himself and only now can we recount the number of assassination attempts on Churchill's life. Many foiled by Walter. This series, with unique access to these incredible memoirs, reveals for the first time, the story of Walter's life with Winston. Together they travelled thousands of miles on precarious journeys to meet Stalin and Roosevelt and other world leaders. Together they rode with Lawrence of Arabia, dodged German assassins, were nearly shot down by enemy aircraft, lone gunmen, U-boats and IRA hit men. This is a story of the political upheavals of the 20th Century, Churchill's constant brushes with death and the role played by an ex post office messenger in preventing an early end to his life.

have some heat-looks a good deal for someone
#2
13 DVD's thats a lot, more than I'd even expect on the great man himself...are the DVD's long?
#3
Good deal, but you have to ask why it needs to split across THIRTEEN discs. The running time of 676minutes could easily fit on just four DVDs. You see this a lot with titles in budget shops, seems to give the impression that bigger means better.
#4
Got to agree with that - seems a bit ott on the number of disks.
#5
Looks like it's one fifty minute (ie hour programme minus the ads) episode per disc.
#6
Dirt cheap, but I found the series a bit drawn out, and can't claim to have watched it 100%

Some of the anecdotes from Thompson, the Bodyguard are, well..... a bit less than gripping! I suppose to be expected, after all if top entertainment back then was Tommy Trinder & Old Mother Riley, we are hardly going to be rolling in the aisles listening to tales recanted by some Copper who was tied to looking after an old depressive in the middle of a long drawn-out war - I don't suppose it was ALL a laugh a minute!

Let's just say though, there have been better History Channel series! :whistling:
#7
It's drawn out, but worth a look. Good value at this price as long as you have the room. Gets shown on Sky from time to time. More fun than listening to Morrissey though... but then, what isn't?
#8
good price long wait

Yes - it seems to be that any Discovery or History Channel sets have as many discs as possible. Misleading to the purchaser who may reasonably expect to be receiving more content :x .

Brilliant!!!! Right up my street this one.
Plus I'm sur emy Dad will be equally fascinated by it as well!!!
#11
I have had this set for sometime now, it was first put on bbc 2 ages ago, the boxset is very big there was no need for the amount of disks, they did say they was going to bring it out again with less disks i don't know if they ever did in the end :)

If you like to stick your dvds on shelves the 13 dvd set will take up alot of room.

They gave some of the individual programme DVDs away with the Torygraph some while ago and my folks passed them on to me. Were JUST interesting enough to watch : rather inane and overly dramatic commentary; loads and loads of repeated clips and plenty of stock footage from memory; ie worth what I paid for them but not sure you'd really want to watch so many and/or pay for them unless you had a specific interest in the topic.

PS: MAYBE they only gave away the worst titles and kept the gems for sale :)

The four disc version looks to be 70 minutes shorter than this monstrosity.
