Who is Sylvia?
Miss Sylvia Gray , MBE, is an energetic lady in her mid-60s whose main passion in life has been the Women's Institute. She joined her local branch at 18 and has just retired after five years as national chairman of that indomitably respectable movement. No longer will she march on to the stage at the Royal Albert Hall in June to face 6,000 behatted countrywomen at the Annual General Meeting.
' People say all we do is make jam and sing Jerusalem, and that's nonsense ' she says briskly, but she is proud of the jam they make and boasts of a turnover of nearly £1 million at WI markets throughout the country.
Sylvia is also a successful businesswoman, and runs a popular hotel in the Cotswolds with the help of 19 women and one man.

The Killer Dust
In a Yorkshire village, high in the Pennines, about 35 people have died and over 100 more are dying from an incurable lung disease and cancer after inhaling asbestos dust at Acre Mill, an asbestos factory. At least 100 more died at another plant in Barking in the 1960s.
This has been called one of the major industrial tragedies of the century. In 1931 Parliament banned the escape of asbestos dust to the air during its manufacture. But despite this, hundreds more have since died throughout the industry.
As some Members of Parliament are pressing for a Public Inquiry at Acre Mill, this programme asks how did it happen?
