Part of the "Masterpiece Theatre" series, THE FIRST CHURCHILLS is a highly dramatic series based around factual accounts from Sir Winston Churchill concerning his ancestors John (played here by John Neville) and Sarah Churchill (Susan Hampshire). John was a legendary military figure who worked his way up to become a General in the English army. Sarah worked within the legal system, and was widely known for her intelligence and beauty. Sir Winston Churchill published an exhaustive tomb on the couple, and it is on those words that this adaptation is based. Charming and charismatic, John and Sarah prove there was more to the family than the achievements of future Prime Minister Sir Winston. This release contains the 12 part series in full.
