SPECIAL GUEST: KRISTINA WAYBORN!
Kristina Wayborn gave us a call to discuss the role of Sara Ashford, but of course we couldn’t NOT talk about James Bond with Magda herself! Ms. Wayborn shares stories from the set of MacGvyer, Octopussy, and some behind the scenes drama from one of her earlier films “The Silent Lovers” in which she portrayed the great Greta Garbo. We thank Kristina again for sharing her time with us.

Boer War (History)
The Second Boer War was fought from 11 October 1899 until 31 May 1902 between the United Kingdom and the South African Republic and the Orange Free State. The British and Irish war effort was supported by troops from several regions of the British Empire, including Southern Africa, the Australian colonies, Canada, Newfoundland, British India, and New Zealand. The war ended in victory for the British and the annexation of both republics. Both would eventually be incorporated into the Union of South Africa in 1910.
The conflict is commonly referred to as simply the Boer War, since the First Boer War is much less well known.
