Watch Chasing Churchill In Search of My Grandfather online: Episode 1 Wanted Dead or Alive

Celia Sandys begins her pursuit of Churchills enigmatic private life at Sandhurst Military Academy, which he left in 1894 to begin a journey in search of adventure and danger, and to gain the adulation he craved. She travels to New York and speaks with former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, who considers Churchill one of his personal heroes. During their conversation, Sandys learns that her grandfathers leadership of Great Britain during World War II was one of Giulianis guiding lights during his own crisis as the leader of New York on September 11. She visits Brooklyn to find the brownstone where Jenny Jerome, Churchills American-born mother, lived and discovers that the actual location is something of a historical dispute. Sandys journeys to the battlefields of the Cuban uprising of 1895, where Churchill nearly died, and South Africa, where, after an amazing tale of capture and escape, he finally found the fame that brought him public acclaim. While in Cuba, she takes delight in visiting a cigar factory to see Churchills iconic Havanas made by hand just as they were decades before.
