Posting Letters to the Moon

This romantic, funny and very touching portrait of life during the early 1940s features readings of wartime letters between Oscar-nominated actress Celia Johnson (Brief Encounter) and her explorer and writer husband Peter Fleming (brother of James Bond creator Ian Fleming) who worked for military intelligence in India and the Far East during the war – ‘as far away as the moon’.

The letters are read by their daughter Lucy Fleming (Miranda in The Archers, Survivors) and her husband Simon Williams (Justin in The Archers, EastEnders, Upstairs Downstairs) and are full of love and warmth and backstage gossip.


With Lucy Fleming and Simon Williams
