Chasing Churchill

This program about Winston Churchill, someone I highly admire, re-airs on some PBS stations, (first episode tonight). It is available on DVD, too.
Here is a website about the cabinet war rooms, fascinating for history lovers. And if you're really interested, go here to buy the History Channel's video about the cabinet war rooms.

Here is the writeup for "Chasing Churchill" from PBS:

"Chasing Churchill: In Search of My Grandfather

Winston Churchill's public life was a remarkable journey. Starting as a Second Lieutenant in the Army, he rose through the political world to become Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and lead Britain to victory against the Axis powers. But Churchill's life involved another, much more private journey. It was a journey in search of himself. The three-part series examines Churchill's quest for his inner self. Hosted by his granddaughter Celia Sandys, the program follows Churchill's footsteps to re-live his dreams, understand his anxieties and examine his inner-most thoughts."
