kitmanTV 11 March 2011

Hat tip ZivilizationsCourage and thanks to TheWarWind
The Gathering Storm is a BBC-HBO co-produced television biographical film about Winston Churchill in the years just prior to World War II.

The title of the film is the same as the title of the first volume of Churchill's largely autobiographical six-volume history of the war, which covered the period from 1919 to 10 May 1940, the day he became prime minister.

The film stars Albert Finney as Churchill and Vanessa Redgrave as his wife Clementine Churchill ("Clemmie"); Finney gained many accolades for his performance, winning both a BAFTA Award for Best Actor and an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor.
