TLS signed “Winston S. Churchill,” one page, 7 x 9, 28 Hyde Park Gate letterhead, February 10, 1961. Letter to Robert Sessions, about the television series The Valiant Years. In full: "I understand that you were coming to see me with Mr. Treyz of the American Broadcasting Company before Christmas, at a time when I was prevented from receiving you by my accident. I am sorry that this should have been so. The reports I have had of the television Series are encouraging, and from what I have seen of the first episodes, it seems to be remarkably well produced." Also includes a letter from Churchill's private secretary Anthony Montague Browne, sending thanks for a letter and a record. Matted and framed together to an overall size of 19 x 15. In fine condition.

The Valiant Years was a documentary produced by ABC based on the memoirs of Winston Churchill, directed by Anthony Bushell and John Schlesinger, narrated by Gary Merrill with extracts from the memoirs voiced by Richard Burton. Oliver Treyz was the president of ABC at the time. The series was broadcast in America by ABC from November 1960 to June 1961, then aired in the UK by the BBC from February to August 1961.
