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.

Fraid I saw some of these when they were given away free with, I think, The Daily Torygraph, and was underwhelmed.

Interesting topic/idea, but with corny, speculative and repetitive voiceover and rather random imagery that smacked of filling most of the time to my view.

Would certainly suggest trying to preview some of it before committing to this set.
