lost cousin as she traces the story of her mother’s half-brother, Cyril. In a doc­u­men­tary to mark the 70th an­niver­sary of VE Day, Hugh Den­nis traces the legacy of Bri­tain’s wartime leader Sir Win­ston Churchill. Those in­ter­viewed for the show in­clude Churchill’s for­mer per­sonal sec­re­tary, Lady Jane Wil­liams, and Robert Hardy, star of Win­ston Churchill: The Wilder­ness Years. YES­TER­DAY This new six-part se­ries be­gins by chart­ing the in­no­va­tions that made the con­struc­tion of HMS Queen El­iz­a­beth, the Royal Navy’s ad­vanced new air­craft car­rier, which is due to come into ser­vice in 2017, pos­si­ble. It’s a story that takes in the first Bri­tish planes to take off from a war­ship, in 1912; and the build­ing of HMS Ar­gus, which came into ser­vice in 1918 and, with its long flat deck to pro­vide a run­way, was the first true air­craft car­rier. Ex­pect plenty of whizzy 3D graph­ics.
