Marvel's Runaways 2

Marvel's Runaways is the story of six diverse teenagers who can barely stand each other but who must unite against a common foe - their criminal parents.

The group of teenagers band together to run away from their homes in order to atone for their parents' actions and to discover the secrets of their origins.

This season, the Runaways have left their homes (and evil parents) behind and now have to learn to live on their own.

As they scavenge for food, search for shelter and take care of one another, they begin to realise that, for better or worse, they're stuck with each other. And it's up to them to take down PRIDE once and for all.

But someone sent a mysterious message to Jonah... Is there a mole in the Runaways?

Meanwhile PRIDE is focused on finding their children, and Jonah has his own dangerous plan in mind.

Manson Speaks: Inside the Mind of a Madman

Channel: Crime + Investigation (DStv 170)
TX Time: 20h00
Genre: True Crime, Documentary

Manson Speaks: Inside the Mind of a Madman

Cult leader Charles Manson was the mastermind behind the brutal murders of nine people – seven occurring over a two-night killing spree in Los Angeles in 1969, including pregnant actress Sharon Tate.

Two years later, Manson and many of his followers were found guilty of some of the most vicious murders in California's history.

This two-part special presents a new theory on Manson's motives that does not align with the "Helter Skelter" theory he was prosecuted under; brings forth eye witnesses who are speaking publicly about Manson for the first time; and makes contact with the only convicted Manson Family killer who is currently out of prison and living under a pseudonym.

The special also examines 26 hours of exclusive never-before-broadcast phone conversations with Manson that may change the scope of his crimes, almost five decades later.

Takes a raw, unfiltered look at stand up through the eyes of up and coming comedians from across the USA. Each episode presents a compelling portrait of a comedian on the verge of breaking out to become the next big name in comedy.

The diverse lineup of breakout talent offers insights into the motivations behind baring one's soul for a living.

Their dynamic, personal performances - where nothing is off limits - will show us exactly how, in their own inimitable way, each comedian turns life into art.

The first episode features Zainab Johnson, whose comedy is informed by her experiences growing up in Harlem in an African-American Muslim family. When you are one of 13 children you've got to stand out – or stand up – to get attention.
