On Carte Blanche this Sunday, 31 August 2008:

Messy Medunsa III

Another episode in the ongoing intrigue and financial mismanagement at the University of Limpopo, which has a budget deficit of more than R200-million; where six people are sometimes employed to do the same job and where you can be suspended - on full pay - for three years. Carte Blanche presents the resultant mess of the merging of two disparate entities.

Warring in Warsaw

On 1 September, 1939, Germany invaded Poland, precipitating the Second World War. Five days later, South Africa joined the Allies in declaring war on Nazi Germany. In the many examples of heroism by South African soldiers in World War II, few surpass the exploits of the pilots who dropped supplies onto the streets of Warsaw. Carte Blanche travels to Poland, where SAAF bravery lives on.

Any idea of how many germs are released by a single sneeze? Or a bacteria-laden handshake? Or what lurks within those seemingly sterile high-tech driers in public bathrooms? Or that supermarket trolley on which you place your groceries? Carte Blanche speaks to a micro-biologist whose speciality is the unseen world of micro-organisms and uncovers some alarming information.

Obie Oberholzer

This is the story of two men on one journey, 72 years apart. One of them is Dutch photojournalist Alphons Hustinx, who set sail for southern Africa in 1934 armed with a 35mm film camera and a spirit of adventure. The second man is Obie Oberholzer, one of South Africa’s best known photographers, also famous for his eccentricities. Carte Blanche takes a trip with them both.
