'Living in an Arab Village'
CLARE SHERIDAN
This is the first of five talks on life in an Arab village by Mrs. Clare Sheridan , who, left a widow, was free to wander with her two children. She will tell how she stumbled by chance upon the oasis of Biskra in the Sahara, about which Robert Hichens had often talked to her when she was a girl. It was the scene of his ' Garden of Allah ', and she felt she had found Paradise.
She built a house there and remained for eight years, living in an Arab way and seeing only Arabs. In time the Arabs of all classes, rich and poor, chiefs and nomads, grew to love her and to trust her. They opened their houses to her, and she got to know a side of Arab life (the women's side) that no man may ever know.
Mrs. Clare Sheridan is the sculptress and writer who five years ago published her memoirs, ' Nuda Veritas ', in which she described her visit in 1920 to Moscow, when she was given a studio in the Kremlin and did the busts of Lenin, Trotsky, and others. She has completed a further volume of memoirs, ' Arab Interlude', which is to be published next month, and will cover the eight years she spent in Biskra.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
