Churchill's roar

Interesting, yet overly compact analysis of Winston Churchill's oratorical techniques in this BBC Radio 4 program commemorating the 40th anniversary of Churchill's death on January 24th. This program doesn't go so much into his use of rhetorical figures, but rather assesses his accent, intonation, rythm and speed. Absolutely worth listening to. I cannot quite make out however why the title reminds me of Blackadder's Prince George ... but I am definitely looking forward to flying to London tomorrow, if only for three days.
