Living in an Arab Village
CLARE SHERIDAN
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.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
