It Takes a Village 2

Teko Modise - a household name in South African soccer and affectionately known as The General by his fans - is the host of the second season of It Takes a Village (DJ Zinhle hosted the first special last year).

Teko recently hung up his soccer boots and now wants to give back to the community by making a positive change in the lives of young men, starting in his hometown Soweto, Gauteng.

Young men in Soweto and South Africa as a whole face a number of daunting challenges from toxic masculinity to unemployment, poverty, violence, crime, alcohol and drug abuse as they try and navigate their way through life.

Teko chooses 11 young men who are grappling with these very issues to be participants on the second season of It Takes A Village to help them overcome the challenges that these problems pose to their lives and to be an inspiration to young men in South Africa.

One Dollar

Mystery set in a small rust belt town in post-recession America, where a one-dollar bill changing hands connects a group of characters involved in a shocking multiple murder.

The path of the dollar bill and point of view in each episode paint a picture of a modern American town with deep class and cultural divides that spill out into the open as the town's secrets get revealed.

It's the age-old question that has daunted scientists, government officials, explorers, religious leaders and populations around the world for centuries: have aliens made contact with Earth?

While more than half the U.S. population believes they have, most sightings and theories still lack the evidential proof to silence the naysayers.

In this six-part series, six highly trained investigators seek to find the answers we've all been searching for.

Using groundbreaking CIA-developed software, military special operations investigative techniques and boots-on-the-ground journalism to track down leads around the world, Contact is the first ever global investigation to determine whether or not aliens have made contact here on Earth.

Led by former CIA Targeting Officer, Myke Cole and Conflict Analyst Dr. Michael Livingston PhD, and featuring renowned astrophysicist and international space journalist, Sarah Cruddas, former USMC Special Ops Intel Officer, Nick Karnaze, Award-winning investigative journalist Paul Beban and former Green Beret Intelligence Sergeant Kawa Mawlayee, Contact follows investigators on their journey to find the evidence needed to prove that aliens have made contact with the human world.

Taking a radical, new and comprehensive approach by bringing together millions of data points, eye-witness accounts and declassified government reports, investigators will for the first time begin piecing together empirical evidence that has the potential to solve a puzzle of galactic proportions.

Whether it's declassified footage of fast-moving objects, patterns in social media sightings that coincide with seismic activity, or eyewitness accounts that connect to evidence from the past, the team of investigators leave no stone unturned.

By using state-of-the-art technology paired with social media's unique ability to connect and share stories across the globe, investigators are able to gather intel and identify patterns like never before.

From astrophysicists and journalists, to former Green Beret interrogators and professors, Contact's team of experts take viewers on a search for answers that is out of this world.

So what do you want from the new presenter of Our Perfect Wedding?

The "chosen ones" will have to prove that they have what it takes to headline DStv's No.1 show and viewers can decide their fate by casting votes for favourites.

There's going to be the usual reality eliminations, hysterics, desperation etc. and One will win the coveted job.

And the new host of OPW is...?
