Churchill's speech has been turned into an online resource, with the recording available both in its entirety and also divided into sections. It is accompanied by photographs and notes providing background information about the historical context.

The Churchill Speech Interactive projected is a partnership involving the Churchill family, Cisco systems, MWR researchers and the Imperial War Museum.
