This was the reaction of some of the critics when this programme was first transmitted in September 1968:

One of the most controversial figures of the Second World War was Professor Frederick Lindemann, Churchill's friend and wartime scientific adviser, who has been called 'the scientist with the greatest power in history.'

This programme tries to unravel some of the complex situations from the development of radar to the bombing of Germany in which Lindemann played a major role.
