Churchill’s Secret Son (Winston Churchill Documentary) | Timeline

Check out our new website for more incredible history documentaries: HD and ad-free.

Meet the man who inspired the character of Big Brother in George Orwell’s “1984”; the man who Churchill’s family would have liked history to bury; the man so secretive, he ordered to burn all his official records upon his death. What was he hiding? This is a journey through the unforgettable, unbelievable and breath-taking life of Brendan Bracken.

Bracker was one of Churchill’s closest advisors and friends, a relationship that particularly bothered Churchill’s wife Clementine. However, Bracken was devoted to Churchill and was instrumental in the most pivotal point of WWII – Churchill’s appointment as Prime Minister. Bracken was newspaper tycoon, Member of Parliament, Wartime minister, Peer of the realm, First Lord of the Admiralty, the first spin doctor, yet a compulsive liar, unmarried and secretive – and a “complete fantasist”.

This film tells the extraordinary story of a truly self-made man who helped to shaped some of the most important events of the 20th century.
