Retro South African police procedural which follows the adventures of an elite crime-fighting police unit similar to the Scorpions.

Other than tackling crime, relevant issues like racial intolerance and family problems are also dealt with.

Channel: Discovery Channel (DStv 121)
TX Time: 20h00
Genre: Travel, Reality

Cousins and avid travellers, Luke MacDonald and Jordan Deall, are taking the road trip of a lifetime to pursue a childhood dream.

They are searching for the world's last dinosaur, Mokele Mbembe, in the heart of the Congolese jungle. If the quest for this legendary beast sounds crazy, there's an even more far-fetched plan to get there: they're hitch-hiking.

Starting in South Africa, Luke and Jordan hitch all the way to the DRC, traversing countries such as Botswana and Namibia to Zambia and Tanzania. It's not an easy ride as they face political unrest, war zones and malaria, but they also gain an appreciation for the diversity and natural beauty of Africa and its people in a whole new way.

The first stop is Munich as they immerse themselves in the culture, customs and traditions of the city, including participating in Oktoberfest, visiting a nude park and going to the Bavarian Alps, where they recreate their own "Julie Andrews - The Hills Are Alive" moment from the iconic scene in The Sound of Music.

Channel: eExtra (OpenView HD 105 / DStv 195)
TX Time: 21h30
Genre: Comedy-Drama

Having already tackled relevant matters of gender politics, the series stirs up the drama in Season 2 when Everlasting casts its first-ever African American suitor.

UnREAL is led by flawed heroine Rachel Goldberg, a young producer whose sole job is to manipulate her relationships with and among the contestants to get the vital dramatic and outrageous footage that the program’s dispassionate executive producer, Quinn King, demands.

What ensues is an eye-opening look at what happens in the outrageous world of unscripted television where being a contestant can be vicious and producing it is a whole other reality.
