Living in an Arab Village
This is the second of Mrs. Clare Sheridan's talks on the eight years she spent in Biskra, and today she is to discuss the vagaries of Saharan servants and housekeeping.
While she was there she visited
Arab chiefs in oases down in the south, and also up in the mountains where they have their farms and also escape from the torrid heat of summer They taught her son to shoot and ride, and treated him always with great respect and consideration even as a little boy, because in their eyes he represented the chief of a clan His father being dead, he was naturally the head of the family !
They respected her because she was the first woman they ever knew who was capable and self-sufficient. That she succeeded in building a house without an architect and with Arab workmen from the village simply amazed them. Her garden was ful of flowers they h?d never seen, and so they said that Allah blessed her.

Some Adventures of Mr. Commissioner
Sanders and Lieutenant ' Bones '
Adapted from the Edgar Wallace Stories by ANTHONY HALL
Episode No. 4-' The Sleuth
As versatile as he was prolific, Edgar Wallace was by no means merely a writer of crime stories, though it was his thrillers that made his name. Before his sales rose into the world's record class, he was already known as the creator of Mr. Commissioner Sanders, and all his friends and enemies of the River.
In the Sanders books Edgar Wallace took as his hero a hard-bitten, unimaginative, but rather heroic District Commissioner ruling a great tract of forest and jungle on behalf of the British Crown. The six episodes, of of which the fourth is to be broadcast tonight, are bringing to life Sanders himself, and such protagonists in his story as his invaluable ally, Bosambo, parvenu chief of the Ochori, and his willing, but incalculable, henchman Bones.
