Summary:
An astounding portrait of one of history's most important families.

They overcame doubters with powerful persuasion. They overthrew enemies with ruthless determination. They overjoyed the public with courageous leadership. The Churchills--regally descended from the first Duke of Marlborough--blended aristocratic privilege with ceaseless ambition to ultimately bring glory to their nation and their name.

While some called the Churchills vulgarians and opportunists, others hailed their foresight and intelligence. But, no matter how great their feats, the family's public profile would exact a private price.

Spanning two centuries and three generations, this definitive three-part documentary traces the historic lives of one of England's most celebrated families. From Lord Randolph Churchill's abrasive political beginnings and son Winston's impact on two world wars, to the progeny who earned their own honor and shame, a vivid Churchill family portrait is brought to life. Through Sir Winston Churchill's own letters and memoirs, as well as the memories of family members, close friends, political foes, and historians, The Churchills recounts the public and private lives of a family blessed with privilege, driven by ambition, and, at times, cursed by fate.

Special DVD features include: a link to the American Experience Web site; closed captions; and video descriptions.
