My First Exposure to Historical Documentaries on Television
11 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was only six years old at the time, and I had been to young to see VICTORY AT SEA back in the early 1950s. At the age of six, I had heard of Winston Churchill, and had seen pictures of him. But it wasn't until this series was shown that I actually heard his words (not that I realized they were being spoken by Richard Burton), and got some idea of his wartime service to Britain and the world. I wish it was shown again, as much of my memories are centered on the musical score and the readings of Burton. The narrative was quite informative - I remember how one episode mentioned the shooting down of a plane, supposedly carrying Churchill, which crashed killing all of it's passengers. One was Leslie Howard.

If there was some clever television network producer out there, this series and WORLD WAR ONE and TIME TO REMEMBER would be put on together

  • maybe on some offshoot of the history channel.
