Churchill: The Long Grass

This major six-part series explores every facet of one of our most famous Britons. Family members, experts and close friends speak honestly about Churchill's tough aristocratic upbringing and troubled relationship with his father, his formative years in the military, his battles for political power, his depression, his dogged wartime leadership and his determination to create a lasting legacy. Modern historians assess his more controversial beliefs, and shed light not just on his finest moments, but his darkest hours and the lesser-known stories that defined his character.

 

Featuring rarely seen footage, newly restored archive and personal photographs, this is an intimate and revealing portrait of Winston Churchill, and the real man behind the myth.


In this episode we uncover the little-known drama of Churchill's first world war, the birth of his fighting bulldog spirit, his extraordinary ability to bounce back from disaster and his willingness to risk his life for good PR.

 

Winston Churchill’s early career in politics is far from a smooth one. As a young MP, his rise through the ranks is meteoric. But soon it comes crashing down. At the outbreak of the 1st WW, at just 40 years old he has clawed his way up to become Britain’s First Lord of the Admiralty, in charge of the largest naval force in the world. But when he is blamed for one of the biggest disasters in British military history, at Gallipoli, his reputation and his career are lefts in tatters. 

 

But Churchill, as he will do so many times in his long life, fights back. He makes the dramatic decision to sign up to serve his country as an army officer in the trenches on the Western Front. It’s a canny if highly dangerous move. His granddaughter tells us: "My grandfather hated war, but if there was going to be a war, he wanted to be able to play his part."  On the frontline he wins over his fellow soldiers and returns to Britain a war hero. But what he wants more than anything is to convince Lloyd George to give him a place in his Cabinet.  He’s been down, but not out and his ultimate dream of leading the country one day isn’t dead.

MasterChef

During lockdown the country has been trying out new recipes and cooking at home more than ever before. Against this background, the country’s premier cooking competition, MasterChef continues on BBC One.  Over six weeks, judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace put 40 of the UK’s most passionate and talented amateur cooks through their paces in the ultimate test of their culinary prowess as they search for one exceptional home cook worthy of being crowned MasterChef Champion 2021.

.

TX13 

After four weeks of fierce competition in the heats, the amateur cooks have been whittled down to just 10. All of them have just one goal, to lift the coveted MasterChef trophy. Only the best can become Finalists at the end of this week.

 

Over the next two nights the pressure intensifies as the remaining ten contestants are split into two groups.

 

The first group of five return to compete for the chance to experience the realities of a professional kitchen for the first time, by cooking a dish for John and Gregg that they would have on the menu of their own restaurant, pop up or featured in their cookbook. 

 

In an unexpected twist, the contestants discover that they are not only presenting their food to John and Gregg, but also a guest judge who will be helping John and Gregg evaluate the five amateurs – one of the country’s most exciting culinary talents, Anna Haugh. At the end of this challenge two of them will be going home.

 

The remaining three contestants then head to South London where they will be working with Jonny Lake, former Executive Chef of three Michelin starred The Fat Duck. Originally from Canada Jonny studied physics and biology at university before retraining as a chef and heading across the Atlantic where he cooked in some of the best kitchens in Europe. After 12 years at The Fat Duck, in 2019 he decided to step out on his own with Trivet, which opened to critical acclaim.  

 

Unable to cook for the paying public, the three amateurs will face a busy lunch service, responsible for serving the restaurant’s staff. No-one knows the food better than they do and expectations are high. Who will buckle under the intense pressure as they cook in a demanding and totally new environment?

 

In a competition where only the food matters, these amateurs will need to stand out to survive - taking another precious step towards being crowned MasterChef Champion 2021.

 

TX14 

The Semi Finals continue and at the end of this week only the best five cooks will remain.

 

Tonight, the second group of amateurs return competing for the chance to experience the pressure of a professional kitchen for the first time. They must cook a dish for John and Gregg that they would have on the menu of their own restaurant, pop up or featured in their cookbook. 

 

In an unexpected twist, the contestants discover that they are not only presenting their food to John and Gregg, but also to legendary chef Marcus Wareing, who will be helping John and Gregg evaluate the five amateurs. At the end of this challenge two of them will be going home.

 

The remaining three head to The Game Bird restaurant at The Stafford Hotel to work with culinary director Ben Tish. Unable to cook for the paying public, the three amateurs will face a busy lunch service, responsible for serving the restaurant’s staff. No-one knows the food better than they do and expectations are high. Who will buckle under the intense pressure as they cook in a demanding and totally new environment?

 

In a competition where only the food matters, these amateurs will need to stand out to survive - taking another precious step towards being crowned MasterChef Champion 2021.

 

TX15 

It’s the last challenge of the Semi-Finals and the six remaining amateurs must cook-off to win a coveted place in the prestigious MasterChef Finals.

 

They must each cook an outstanding dish to win-over three of the country’s most revered restaurant critics –Grace Dent, Jay Rayner and Jimi Famurewa. Serving food to these masters of the dining room is a daunting task for the most adept of chefs, and these talented home-cooks now have to put their skills and palates on the line. Any mistake could cost them the competition, so with the pressure firmly on, it is a tense and thrilling battle culminating in a difficult decision – who will John Torode and Gregg Wallace take through to MasterChef Finals Week?

This Is MY House

Stacey Dooley hosts this brand new, prime time series in which four people claim to own the same house and be the same person. The catch, only one of them is telling the truth and the other three are actors. 

Celebrity panel Bill Bailey, Emily Atack, Judi Love, Jamali Maddix and guest panelist Rob Rinder must correctly pick the true homeowner. If they get it right the homeowner wins a cash prize, get it wrong and the homeowner leaves empty handed. 

 

After failing to pick the real homeowner last time the panel are desperate to put things right and with an actual Judge on the team they are convinced getting to the truth should be straight forward. They are looking for the real Michael and from first sight of the four players the panel are instantly thrown by a familiar face! The path to truth becomes further obscured by one Michaels’ inability to remember anything about his own life, another Michaels’ very familiar chat about his beloved Rachel and another Michael looking like someone who once chatted up Emily Atack in a bar. 

 

And from this confusion things get heated in the kitchen as the panel try to make their final decision….

While David tackles the automaton, the Bear Ladies, Julie Tatchell and Amanda Middleditch, give the bear the brush up he so desperately needs.

Eventually, with the help of the French resistance, he managed to escape. Due to this early experience, his daughter Linda remembers him as a man who could make anything out of metal.
