Dear Granny Smith: free audiobook read by Philip Jackson

First broadcast on Book of the Week in 2009, the wonderful production of Dear Granny Smith: A letter from your postman by Roy Mayall and delivered by Philip Jackson is now available as a free audiobook.

A fascinating, eye-opening letter which goes behind the scenes in the sorting room and out on the daily round, it is a heartfelt musing on the past, present and future role of one of the oldest British institutions, the Postie.

You can listen to it here, and sit back while you imagine “dawn colours and bird song, and letters bathed in morning light.”
