Description

The BBC began its coverage the morning of Winston Churchill’s State Funeral with a half-hour tribute that aired on BBC1 at 8.30 A.M. Entitled “Homage to a Great Man: Sir Winston Churchill,” this ‘anthology’ of pictures, poetry and prose told the story of Churchill’s life and work. Richard Dimbleby narrated the film, with expert assistance from actors including Laurence Olivier, John Gielgud and Jack Hawkins.
This is an original print of the 8 millimeter film that was produced for use in schools, in its original canister. Rare, quite beautifully done, and still perfectly playable.
