Posting Letters to the Moon with Lucy Fleming and Simon Williams

A romantic, funny and very touching portrait of life during the early 1940s featuring 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) posted to India and the Far East during WW2 working on Military Intelligence. 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 give an insight into a young mother’s life coping during the war. We hear wonderful stories about Celia Johnson working with Noel Coward and David Lean leading to her starring role in the classic film Brief Encounter in 1945. ’...simply spellbinding performance… revealing an abundance of love and affection between ordinary people caught in extraordinary times… a theatrical gem’ British Theatre Guide.
