Winston Churchill

Video; Streaming Video; Online
The 26 July 1945 has gone down as one of the greatest shocks in British electoral history. Triumphant wartime leader Winston Churchill and the Conservative party were heavily defeated. The Labour opposition, which had never before won a majority of parliamentary seats, was elected on a landslide. It was a stunning and utterly unexpected result, which changed the course of British politics. But why had Churchill, whose stock could have been no higher after the conclusion of the World War Two, been rejected by the people he led to victory? And why had the rejection been so complete? Gathering together a cast of illustrious historians, biographers and writers, this film seeks answer as to why a man seemingly at the height of his popularity was so dramatically ousted from power.
