All Together Now 2

All Together Now brings outstanding talent, a huge range of musical styles and a load of laughs from host Rob Beckett.

Any kind of singer can take to the stage, from soloists to groups, amateurs to professionals, but they all have one simple aim: to win over TV's biggest judging panel, The 100.

Headed up by Spice Girl Geri Horner, The 100 are a mix of singers from every corner of the music industry and, as you saw in Season 1, they've got big voices, bigger opinions and are always hard to impress.

Established favourites Divina De Campo, Georg, Paulus, Tina T, Mr Fabulous and Lili all return, and they're joined by some new recruits, all bringing their own distinctive style and taste to judging panel.

Each week, the performers competing hope to make it into the top three. The winner of each heat is guaranteed a place in the season final, with the acts in second and third place each performing another great song in a dramatic sing-off.

The winner of the sing-off also goes through to the final. At the end of the season, one act will walk away with a cash prize of £50,000.

In the first episode of the new season, acts dare to take on some of the most successful artists of all time - leading to some massive scores but also some of our lowest.

We see interpretations of classics by Amy Winehouse, Chaka Khan and Led Zepplin and contemporary hits by Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello, Rudimental and James Morrison.

Every act performs with heart and soul, and all have one simple aim: to get The 100 up on their feet and joining in.

Whilst there's something for everyone, including gags galore from Rob and big opinions from The 100, it's the performances that count. Tonight's acts need to deliver.

Who will get The 100 up on their feet and singing along, and which two acts will secure their place in the grand final for £50,000?

Locked Up 2

Manipulated into embezzling funds for her boyfriend and sentenced to prison, a naïve young woman must quickly learn to survive in a harsh new world in this Spanish prison drama.

In the second season, an oppressive new head of security forces Macarena and the other inmates of Cruz del Sur to do whatever it takes to survive.

Exhibit A

Channel: Netflix South Africa
TX Time: 10h00 (all episodes)
Genre: True Crime, Documentary Series

Exhibit A

A true crime documentary series exploring legal cases in which people have been convicted based on "science" that is not accepted by the scientific community.

Each episode focuses on a different criminal case in which the defendant is still incarcerated, and in some cases on death row, and hinges on a specific field of forensic science.

This series exposes the unfounded certainties so many jurors believe about forensic science.

Are forensic pathologists simply snake oil salesmen on the stand? And if they are, why are they still the people to whom a jury turns to for truth?

This show examines how the narrative crumbles when the science is called into question.
