"Clementine Churchill - Winston's emotional rock"

Tues 13 September 7.00pm

 

According to the old adage, behind every great man there is a great woman. That is certainly true of Winston Churchill, who said that the Second World War would have been "impossible" without his wife Clementine. She was his emotional rock, most trusted confidante and provided much needed challenge, acting as his social conscience.  Anthony Atkinson discusses this remarkable woman.
