Weekend - The Making of Sylvia

Television (Excerpts) – 1984

She wasn't ordinary. She wasn't at all ordinary.
– Actor Eleanor David on Sylvia Ashton-Warner
Director Michael Firth says he had to use three British actors in order to finance the $3 million movie. But he has every confidence in Eleanor David's ability to capture the trials of a 30-year old Sylvia.
– Reporter Ainslie Talbot
It was a fun, freewheeling programme and I loved doing it.
– Weekend presenter Gordon McLauchlan
