Coming up on Sunday's Carte Blanche (20 September 2009):

Toxic Mix

Experts say our education system is a “toxic mix” that puts South African state schools at the very bottom of the pile. Our learners can’t compete with children from countries like Mozambique, Kenya and even Zimbabwe. So which elements combine to make up this gloomy outlook? Carte Blanche visits several schools to find out more.

Presenter: Bongani Bingwa

Insecurity Guards

The private security industry supposedly ensures that guards are properly trained, are legal citizens and don’t have criminal records. But the truth is somewhat elusive.

Carte Blanche investigates the ease with which almost anyone, with a few thousand rand, can buy the documents necessary to be a legal South African security guard.

Presenter: Devi Sankaree Govender
Producer: Gordon Greaves


Fight Club

Feel like unwinding – a walk on the beach, a yoga class? Or how about a full-fisted fight against an opponent you would normally wish no harm? Carte Blanche finds out how peace-loving, respectable executives are getting stuck into each other in the name of leisure.

Presenter: Les Aupiais
Producer: Diana Lucas


Male Menopause

Erectile dysfunction is not something most men smile about. Now leading international research is linking it to menopause, once regarded the exclusive domain of women. Medically, it’s a decline in testosterone, which can have far reaching effects on health and lifestyle. Carte Blanche finds out if the penis is a barometer for men’s health.

Presenter: Derek Watts
Producer: Backyard Productions

Caret Blanche is on Sundays at 19h00.
