Into the Storm

Hugh Whitemore

BBC2, 2nd November 2009

“Absorbing drama starring Brendan Gleeson, a follow-up to The Gathering Storm, depicting Winston Churchill’s rise to power and his determination to steer the country to victory in the Second World War.

His stubborn, defiant nature made him a formidable wartime leader, but these very same traits have caused him to lose touch with the British people. As Church awaits the results of the 1945 general election, he reflect on the pivotal events of the war, and consequences for his wife Clementine, forced to lead a life in the shadows while he took centre stage.”
