Churchill's Bodyguard DVD
A collection of films giving an insight into the political upheavals of the 20th century, Churchill's constant brushes with death and the role played by an ex-post office messenger in preventing an early end to his life.
In almost any piece of film you'll see of Britain's great wartime leader, this is the man in the background - anonymous and secret.
Until now his critical role in saving the life of Churchill from a series of attacks has been hidden from the wider public.
After the war Walter Thompson's censored book told just part of the story.
His full memoirs were suppressed even by Churchill himself - only now do we know the number of assassination attempts on Churchill's life.
This series, with a unique access to these incredible memoirs, reveals for the first time the story of Walter's life with Winston.
