Cola Wars

Channel: HISTORY (DStv 186)
TX Time: 20h15
Genre: Documentary

Cola Wars

Traces the long and ferocious rivalry between Coke and Pepsi, centered on the "New Coke" debacle of 1985.

For almost a hundred years, Coke had been the undisputed leader in the multibillion dollar global soda industry – stodgy, predictable, but indisputably top dog – while Pepsi had been the upstart No. 2, forever poking at its big brother with cutting edge advertising.

But in 1985, in a stranger-than-fiction twist, Coca-Cola's executives took a step so daring that no one in either company could believe it: they changed the formula of the most popular beverage on the planet.


Channel: Vuzu (DStv 116)
TX Time: 22h00
Genre: Comedy-Drama


Centers on Jeff, aka Mr. Pickles (Jim Carrey), an icon of children's television and a beacon of kindness and wisdom to America's impressionable young minds and the parents who grew up with him.

But when this beloved personality's family begins to implode, Jeff finds no fairytale, fable or puppet will guide him through this crisis, which advances faster than his means to cope.

The result: a kind man in a cruel world faces a slow leak of sanity.

Throughout the season, Jeff begins to push back against the limits of the well-oiled machine that is "Mr. Pickles' Puppet Time," and of his executive producer, Seb.

Seb fears Jeff's mental state could ruin the branding empire they've built, and thus begins preparing the show for a life after Jeff, while Deirdre, the head puppet maker, grapples with her own personal and professional life issues.

Almost half the world's population lives in coastal areas.

To most of us, the rules which govern the rise and fall of the tide are a complete mystery.

With stories from around the world we'll take a look at this primeval influence which affects all of our lives, from the planet's highest tide, swirling whirlpools and waves, the deck of an oil tanker to an Irish beach.

The series investigates Canada, Norway, Ireland and China to see the world's highest tide, some of the planet's most dangerous currents and one of Britain's most frightening whirlpools.

We meet the people who depend on the tide for their living, as well as those whose way of life is affected by changes to tidal patterns.

At the end of each episode, a car is chosen. But will Spike agree with the buyer's choice? For that matter, will you?
