About this show

Posting Letters to the Moon is a romantic, funny, and touching portrait of life during the early 1940s featuring readings of wartime letters between Oscar-nominated actor Celia Johnson and her explorer and writer husband Peter Fleming (brother of James Bond creator Ian Fleming).

Their daughter, Lucy Fleming, alongside her husband, Simon Williams, reads these touching and amusing letters that tell of Celia's experiences during the war: coping with a large isolated house full of evacuated children, learning to drive a tractor, dealing with rationing, holidays in Cornwall where she took to surfing, and all the while accepting offers, when she could get away, to act — for David Lean, Noël Coward, wartime propaganda films, and ultimately in the classic film Brief Encounter.
