The Lion's Roar

Episode Guide »
The second hour focuses on the 10 years between 1929 and 1939, which have become widely known as the "Wilderness Years" during which Churchill was variously described as a "maverick", a "spent force" and a "fanatic". But then, through a remarkable set of circumstances, the war years from 1939 to 1945 became the most famous period in his amazing life. "The Lion's Roar" traces Churchill's leadership of Britain through its finest hour during the Battle of Britain to its darkest hour in 1942. His character was tested at every moment of the war. His famous speeches evoked everything about Britain that he thought was great, and so galvanized the nation.
