On the previous episode of Soviet Lives, William Mandel interviewed a 16 year-old girl at her home in Samarqand (AZ0355). Her family were friends of a Russian journalist, whom was also an associate of Mandel. The two journalists were invited to the family's home for dinner. While the father, a college teacher, prepared the meal in the kitchen, Mandel interviewed the mother, who is Uzbek by nationality. They discuss their Jewish relatives, co-workers, and neighbors; the relationship between Israel and the Arab countries in the Middle East. The Russian track of the interview is played in the right channel, English translation by Mandel is played in the left channel. The interview is a little less than 17 minutes, after which Mandel fields phone calls from the listening audience.
