Meet Sandra Sylvester, Alpha’s new make-up artist

From ABC TV News, the house magazine of ABC Television & Iris Production – No 11, April 1962

‘I was sick of secretarial work and I wanted to do something artistic’, explains Alpha newcomer Trainee Make-up Artist SANDRA SYLVESTER.

After a spell of secretarial work at Birmingham University and later with a firm of solicitors, 18-years-old Sandra sat Birmingham Art School’s entrance exam – and passed. However, not fancying a five-year course she applied for a scenic design job at Alpha.

With no vacancy in the department, she was given the chance of using her artistic ability in Make-up where she now enjoys every minute – as can be seen as she works on Announcer JOHN EDMUNDS.

An outdoor girl in her spare time, Sandra’s favourites are water skiing and horse riding.
