  Prunella Scales Friday 15 November 2002  
Playing Sybil Fawlty made her famous and she's known as one of Britain's leading comedy actresses.

But, in a career spanning more than fifty years, Prunella Scales has proved her versatility in a number of roles.
This week she's back on the London stage, as a woman who, after fifty years in a mental institution, sets off to find the sister she was parted from in childhood.
Prunella Scales joins Sheila to talk about Too Far to Walk and the work that's made her name. Too Far to Walk is playing at the Kings Head Theatre, Islington until 8th December 2002
