Chasing Churchill DVD
"Chasing Churchill: In Search of My Grandfather" (2008) presents a personal perspective on the famous British statesman. Sir Winston Churchill's granddaughter Celia Sandys was born in 1943, during his tenure as prime minister of Britain at the height of WWII. The two shared three interests: painting, literature and exotic travel-and she traveled all over the world with her illustrious grandfather in his later years. In this documentary that was originally shown on PBS, Sandys gives a tour of some of the places they saw together, including France, Egypt, Cuba, Morocco and South Africa. She also shares some of his artistic and literary work, providing an insight into the great man's thoughts and life beyond his political persona.
