Saving Our Marriage

South African marriage coaching reality series in which couples go on a journey of learning how to build a healthy and loving marriage.

The series films couples in their day-to-day lives from Monday to Thursday; on Friday the couples move into a couples retreat for the weekend, where they are put through intense counselling and tasks by resident experts Paul Nyamuda and Ilze Alberts.

Genre: Documentary Series, Wildlife


British actor John Boyega narrates the dramatised natural history series Serengeti, bringing to life the challenges and experiences facing some of the Serengeti's most well-known and iconic species in intimate detail.

The series follows the interconnected stories of a cast of savannah animals over one year.

From warthogs to lions, mongoose to cheetahs, a cast of our favourite African animal characters is filmed closer and more intimately than ever before, using groundbreaking filming techniques and technology, including drone technology and the use of multiple stabilised camera systems.

With unique access to a pristine and unspoilt corner of the Serengeti, the series captures the high drama of the daily lives of the area's distinctive wildlife up close, joining them in the emotional moments they face at key points in their lives, in their natural habitat.

Genre: Documentary, History, Factual

Moon Landing: The Lost Tapes

When Neil Armstrong's boot touched lunar soil on 20 July, 1969, it was our momentous, first foray into the universe around us.

But the real truth of how we got to the moon, the inelegant, messy and often harrowing reality of regular people actually doing the thing that was thought to be impossible, hasn't been told.

For the 50th anniversary of man's most audacious technological achievement, Moon Landing: The Lost Tapes will mine previously unexplored material: audio interviews with astronauts and engineers locked away in NASA's vaults, camera reels featuring lunar footage thought to be lost for a generation, home movies that have gathered dust for decades.

Working with producer Nicole Rittenmeyer, this narrative will take you inside man's voyage to the moon.
