Trivia

Two articles written by Richard Burton attacking Churchill, one entitled "To Know Him is to Hate Him", caused great offence in the UK and the US when they were published in November 1974 before his programme was broadcast. Burton's younger brother Graham Jenkins contended they were in poor taste after playing Churchill in a favourable light with considerable help from the wartime leader's family. See more »

Fascinating epic
19 March 2002 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Made for television in 1974 but non the less rather well-made and supported by great actors. Richard Burton stars as Sir Winston Churchill in this epic which spans the pre-war years of 1936-40. Following Churchill from being both ignored and ridiculed to the point where he is asked to lead the British nation, The gathering storm is interesting, fascinating and a great document of history. Richard Burton gives a powerful and fully believable performance, one of his better in the 1970s. 6/10
