To mark the 50th anniversary of Sir Winston Churchill's death, Jeremy Paxman will host an hour-long BBC One documentary this Wednesday 28th January at 9pm, featuring a visit the Churchill Archives Centre.
Featuring the Churchill Archives Centre, this BBC documentary looks back at the magnificent send-off organised for the man who led the country to victory in the Second World War — the only state funeral for a commoner in the 20th century.
Paxman meets some of the people involved that day, from close family to soldiers who carried the coffin, Boris Johnson — author of a recent book on Churchill as well as visiting the Churchill Archives Centre. He also considers whether the former prime minister's legacy still resonates today.
Members of College are invited to a live streaming in the Wolfson Theatre preceded by a short introduction by the Director of the Archives Centre, Allen Packwood, at 8:50pm.
