Churchill’s Se­cret ITV, 8pm

Macclesfield Express - - TVWEEK -

Much has been writ­ten and said about Win­ston Churchill since his death in 1965, but for many years, lit­tle was men­tioned about the stroke he had in 1953 dur­ing his se­cond spell as Prime Min­is­ter. This fea­ture-length drama sheds more light on what hap­pened, and why it was hushed up. It’s told through the eyes of a young nurse, Mil­lie, who is sum­moned to a se­cret lo­ca­tion where she learns her lat­est as­sign­ment is to care for the ail­ing politi­cian. Churchill is not ex­pected to sur­vive, and as his fam­ily gath­ers by his bed­side, old ten­sions be­gin to reap­pear.
