TENSIONS MOUNT FOR THE BRITISH Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Brian Cox) as the clock counts down to the Allied D-Day landings in Normandy, France, in June, 1944.

Fearful of repeating his mistakes from World War I in the Battle of Gallipoli, exhausted by years of war, plagued by depression and obsessed with his historical destiny, Churchill is reluctant to embark on the large-scale campaign, one upon which the entire war effort hinges.

Clashing with the US General Eisenhower (John Slattery), and British Field Marshal Montgomery (Julian Wadham), the troubled Churchill receives support and devotion from his wife, Clementine Churchill (Miranda Richardson).

‘Clemmie’ is portrayed drawing on her strength and shrewdness to halt Winston’s physical, mental, and spiritual collapse - and inspires him on to greatness.

Named in a 2002 poll as the Greatest Briton of all time, Churchill is reckoned to be one of the most influential people in British history. His grave is in Bladon, a village near Blenheim Palace, the Churchill family home.
