The famours Minister of Aircraft Production in Churchill’s government, Lord Beaverbrook.  An influential media tycoon, industrialist and millionaire, Beaverbrook did miracles to the output of new aircraft during the crucial months of May to October 1940, and thus is to be considered one of the architects of the victory in the Battle of Britain. For further story about his ministership, see article Lord Beaverbrook, a Week at the Office.

This clip shows Lord Beaverbrook later during the war, relating his meeting with Stalin to the press.
