Die Van Coke Show

George Clarke's Amazing Spaces 8

The new season will again follow people across Britain who are finding inventive ways to create beautiful spaces that don't blow the budget and can completely transform lives.

With unquenchable enthusiasm, architect George Clarke invites viewers to let their imaginations run wild as he celebrates the extraordinary world of small design spaces and unique builds: secret hideaways, spacesaving retreats, eco-friendly bolt holes and reconditioned vehicles.

He shows that with careful planning, cunning design and masses of imagination, the seemingly unachievable is conceivable.

In this season George will look at the glorious potential that canals, rivers and coastline hold for those with small budgets but big imaginations.

My Ghost Story

Stories of the paranormal told by the people who lived through them, and claim to have captured their hauntings on tape.

From moving furniture to dark apparitions to violent poltergeists, these eye-witness accounts of the unexplainable are transformed into more than tales with terrifying visual evidence.

Everybody has a ghost story, but these people have theirs on film.

You Me Her 4

Channel: Netflix South Africa
TX Time: 10h00 (all episodes)
Genre: Comedy-Drama

You Me Her 4

To spice up their sex life, yuppie husband and wife Jack and Emma hire an escort. But things take an unexpected turn when romantic feelings surface.

Season 1 was a contemporary classic rom-com that just happened to involve three people, from meet cute straight through the iconic race to the airport.

Now that grad student Izzy is moving in with suburban couple Jack and Emma, Season 2 is about the complex realities of polyamory and "throupling."

What happens when this peculiar rom-com fades to black? Can they prove their best, truest, happiest lives really are together, even when more conventional alternatives beckon?

They stood up to the outside world but now they have to face something even more formidable: themselves.

Taking the leap was just the beginning. Season 2 is about holding on when letting go seems so much easier.
