In 1968 Barbra Streisand was sent a short story written by Nobel Prize -winner Isaac Bashevis Singer. In 1983 she finally completed the film of that story - Yentl. She starred in it, directed for the first time, produced and co-wrote it. It was the culmination of a 15-year fight to persuade people to invest in a project she 'passionately believed in' but which no-one else did.
In the summer of 1982 she began filming and allowed BBC cameras to observe her at work. In a candid interview with Iain Johnstone she revealed for the first time her doubts and insecurities about this mammoth undertaking. The programme includes extracts and musical numbers from the completed film.
