Comment on Winston Churchill - The Valiant Years
30 May 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Winston Churchill - The Valiant Years ran on BBC TV from February 11th to August 5th 1961, in fact it was repeated while it was still running in its first broadcast. There was also a selection of repeats in 1965, after Churchill's death. What has stuck most of all in my mind is the theme music (composed by Richard Rogers) - not just the title theme, so much so that I searched for the LP and obtained it only recently. I also recall the commentary by Gary Merrill, which seemed to add impact to the image. Richard Burton was well cast as the voice of Churchill. I am surprised that there has never been any attempt to repeat not even one of that series - or perhaps put it on DVD. Some might say that the content is now dated, but that could be said of any history, and this was perhaps one of the best portrayals, if not the classic portrayal, of Churchill's war years. I am sure the content of the series would stand the test of time if given a chance.
