Churchill And Me With Hugh Dennis
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.
