The Churchills (PBS, 8-10:30 p.m.): Three generations of the celebrated British dynasty are portrayed in this carefully researched documentary. The program focuses on the family's most famous member, Sir Winston Churchill, best remembered for his firm leadership during World War II: ''He was a romantic whose power lay in his capacity to shape the world in his vision, to make men and women do things that they didn't know they were capable of doing,'' says Pamela Churchill Harriman, Churchill's daughter-in-law (who is currently US ambassador to France). Other close family members are interviewed for the program, along with Winston Churchill's official biographer, Martin Gilbert.
