Most of the speeches are in Churchill's own voice, taken from the BBC Archives. The few speeches in the compilation for which no voice recording exists are read by Churchill's grandson, also named Winston S. Churchill.
The speeches are brilliant. Winston Churchill was a giant in 20th century history. I can't think of anyone among our current Western politicians who comes anywhere remotely close to his stature. Listen to these speeches and try to think of any current Western politician who could stand up and give an unprompted speech that comes anywhere close to these speeches of Churchill's. I can't think of anyone among the current crop of Western politicians who could do it, even with a teleprompter.
Churchill speaks in logical, well constructed paragraphs, not sound bites. And his unwavering moral clarity rings consistently through. Today's politicians just aren't in his league.
