Follows two cops, Bishop and Pike, as they chase down hardened criminals in London's East End. On the surface they have a lot in common: they are cool, smart, unapologetically street-wise and tough; they share a deep, fraternal relationship - and are always there for each other.

However, they come from very different backgrounds and their personal motivations and emotional lives outside the police force differ as a result: Pike is an aspirational family man, the son of a decorated police officer who's determined to follow in his father's footsteps, but not be in his shadow. Bishop grew up in care homes and on the streets, and never knew his father.

Despite these differences Bishop and Pike are bonded by the same moral code and work brilliantly well together even when the chemistry between them looks set to explode.

The River 2

Channel: 1Magic (DStv 103)
TX Time: 20h00
Genre: Telenovela

Last season we saw how Tumi, her family and the wider Refilwe community were drawn into a web of lies and turmoil by Lindiwe Dlamini, who murdered, destroyed households and manipulated, continually evading justice.

Will the scales of morality tip in the favour of those Lindiwe has wronged in her ruthless quest to build a blood-drenched empire?

Will this mark the end of the villainous boss lady, as she battles for her life amid her legacy crumbling, or will the bonds of family prove stronger than Lindiwe's transgressions?

This season we'll also find out if Tumi will lead the Refilwe rebellion to ensure that Lindiwe gets her day of reckoning. With mounting evidence against Lindiwe and co., will this be the final nail in the coffin sealing her fate, or will she prove to have more tricks up her sleeve and define the odds?

25th Screen Actors Guild Awards

TX Time: 03h00 (live)
Genre: Awards

The only televised awards shows to exclusively honour performers, the SAG Awards present 13 awards for acting in film and television in a fast-moving, two-hour show.

These honours are fundamental to the spirit of the Screen Actors Guild Awards because they recognise what all actors know – that acting is a collaborative art.
