Churchill on DVD
Starring Brian Cox as the man himself, the DVD of Churchill is released on 16 October. It follows the British Prime Minister in the days before the D-Day landings in 1944. The Allies are ready to invade a Europe occupied by the Nazis, but have to wait for Churchill’s decision on whether to give the invasion the go-ahead. But Churchill is depressed, exhausted and worried about his legacy – how will he react to the pressure to make the right decision?
The screenplay for Churchill has been written by historian Alex von Tunzelmann, and there is an impressive cast, including Miranda Richardson as Clementine Churchill, John Slattery as General Eisenhower and Julian Wadham as Field Marshal Montgomery.
