3.4 of 5 from 45 ratings
This remarkable film of Sir Winston Churchill's State Funeral shows more of the original broadcast of January 1965 than ever before. The coverage bears witness to the reverence for Britain's great war-leader, shown in every gesture and every word by all those who took part in the nation's tribute on that bitterly cold day. An historic document, this television recording employed the technology of the day to capture the sights and sounds of Britain's farewell to one of her greatest sons. The original material comes from the archives of ITV, one of the two television companies then broadcasting in the United Kingdom.
