Clare produced this cultural show together with 26thFrame whereby she brought to the viewers cultural event happenings on a weekly basis.

Siesta, the LIVE daily TV afternoon show that ran successfully for four consecutive years, brought Clare closer to the people at home who supported it and increased in numbers from year to year as they sought more quality in content.
