    The Iron Duke

    The Iron Duke

    In a BBC project first broadcast in 2002 Sir Winston Churchill was voted into first place in a poll to establish the 100 greatest Britons. Martin's latest feature suggests that his vote might have gone elsewhere.

    Good to hear both sides of the story but my mind is made up about Jardine.
