Andrew Roberts's guide to Churchill on screen | The Spectator

"Still the best depiction of Churchill on a screen is in the eight-part TV series The Wilderness Years (1981), in which Robert Hardy inhabited the part of Churchill to such a degree that it affected everything else he did to a greater or lesser extent. (Can one see something of Churchill in Hardy's depiction of the Minister of Magic in Harry Potter?) Hardy's profound reading about Churchill, and friendship with Sir Martin Gilbert, Churchill's biographer, helped make the series the success it was, and set the standard for everything that followed."
