In 1991 Sylvia made an anonymous donation of eggs at the London Fertility Centre. A chance observation in a newspaper allowed her to identify the recipient of her egg, thanks to a newspaper article. The programme (50 mins) follows Sylvia as she makes contact with the woman and her twin children. It also tells the story of Sylvia’s own son Eliott, who was himself conceived with donated sperm.

A repeat of this programme broadcast on the channel Really in 2013 is also available.
