The six million dollar man was on welfare TV and it was a simulcast meaning Afrikaans on the telly and English on the radio. What was it called back then in Afrikaans? Used to enjoy this show.

Jeepers that brings back memories - I remember switching the hifi on radio 2000 for the English version - LOL.  I never used to like the Afrikaans translations (even though I'm Afrikaans speaking - I thought it killed the shows).  I believe that if something is in a language be it books/movies/series it should be in the language it's meant to be (I'd rather prefer subtitles to translations).
