Chasing Churchill: In Search of My Grandfather

Worth Doing Once

Season 1, Episode 3 of 3

In this, the third chapter of Churchill's life, Sandys travels to Morocco and to the South of France in search of those places that gave Churchill particular pleasure. He called Morocco, especially Marrakech and the Atlas Mountains, "the most beautiful place on earth. " Here, even during the turmoil of the Second World War, he found time to travel with Roosevelt and indulge his favorite relaxation -- painting. Towards the end of his life, travel, friends and the solace he found in painting and writing became more and more important to him. As the series comes to its conclusion in the beautiful setting of the Cote d'Azur, Sandys reflects on the life of the man she knew: a life that began on the battlefields of the world, blossomed through remarkable qualities of leadership and inspiration, but then began to fade into the melancholy of old age.
