Channel: SABC1
TX Time: 18h00
Genre: Lifestyle, Documentary Series


A show which goes behind the scenes of social media stars to find out how they make money and what it takes to stay relevant and on the sharp end of influencing.

Topics covered include image, branding and frequency of posting.


Channel: Mzansi Wethu (DStv 163)
TX Time: 19h00
Genre: Docu-Reality


Docu-reality series created and hosted by Siyabonga Thwala which documents the journey undertaken by perpetrators of crime seeking forgiveness from their victims and their families.

The 13 part docu-series unpacks the stories of the perpetrators as they take accountability for their actions by apologising to their victims.

Setting the tone for the dialogue is the victim, recalling the events that changed their lives. The incident which resulted in the offender being jailed is then delievered through a re-enactment.

The offender then proceeds to write a letter to the victim or victim's family expressing their desire to meet with them. Once both parties agree to meet face-to-face, mediation occurs under the guidance of trained Correctional Services facilitators and social workers.

Due to the sensitivity of the process, all cases are handled with the assistance of the Department of Correctional Services and their rehabilitation program facilitators.

Is it possible to heal wounds caused by the devastation of crime through a victim-and-offender dialogue?

Kokkedoor 3

Who could forget Tannie Poppie? Or Tiaan and Mynhardt's incredible creations? Tannie Skuinskoek or Magda's sayings? Johnny and Elsa's innovative menus?

After two seasons of Koekedoor, as well as Kokkedoortjie and Koekedoortjie (are you keeping up here?), the amateur chef competition Kokkedoor returns to kykNET.

This time the show has a whole new city-slick look and feel, but the central aim is still the same: to find the perfect combination of traditional cook and funky fresh chef.

Feeding the Super Rich

Channel: BBC Lifestyle (DStv 174)
TX Time: 20h00
Genre: Documentary Series, Food

Feeding the Super Rich

An exclusive behind the scenes miniseries that follows the private network of luxury food suppliers who cater for the UK's billionaires.

London is home to more billionaires than any other city on the planet. Like all of us, they need feeding and it's become big business.

Exclusive food finders indulge every whim to satisfy the appetites of some of the most demanding clients.

In this high stakes market they go to any length to source, import and prepare the world's finest and most expensive food and drink.

For some clients, the finest ingredients just aren't enough; it's what you do to them and where they've been that counts.

It's a rarefied and private world where only the very best will do.
