1000-lb Sisters

Amy and Tammy Slaton are morbidly obese sisters in need of medical weight-loss surgery.

They currently run a YouTube channel that has been their only source of income, because with their weight, they are barely able to move around.

With the help and guidance of Atlanta-based bariatric surgeon Dr. Procter, can the Slaton sisters reach their goal and prove the naysayers wrong?

Apocalypse: War of Worlds

Summer 1945. Leaving the atrocities of war behind, the Allies wholeheartedly celebrate a return to peace.

But behind the scenes of global reconstruction, a more drawn-out, insidious confrontation is in the making.

Soon, an "iron curtain" will come down, dividing the Communist Eastern bloc, dominated by the Soviet Union, and the West, behind the United States.

This is the Cold War, the War of Worlds. In a frantic arms race, the United States have invented the worst threat possible - the nuclear bomb.

During the course of 50 years, the great heads of state - Stalin, Khrushchev, Mao and Kennedy - face each other off in a precarious balance of terror.

In Indochina, Korea, Vietnam and Afghanistan, they wage war on each other through other peoples.

Nonetheless, it is still the same war between East and West. The same leaders, the same terrified civilians, the same regions destroyed by bombs, the same rows of starving prisoners.

Beyond those who are in power, all of mankind can, at any time, be plunged into the Apocalypse.

The series once again follows British police chief Jim Worth (Tim Roth) and his family as they desperately try to escape a past that unleashed an act of vicious revenge.

Set in a mountain town in the Canadian Rockies, the second season follows on from last season's dramatic finale, with Jim lying bleeding on a mountainside.

Confused by all that has happened, Anna flees from her parents and takes refuge in a religious community.

However, her haven may not be as safe as it first seems...

As the season thunders its way towards another thrilling conclusion, the family and town face bigger threats than ever before, with more lives being put on the line.

Will any of them make it out alive?

Monster Ships

When comes to navigating the volatile, unpredictable oceans, only the biggest, toughest vessels will do.

This series joins the crew of the world's biggest ships as they take on the toughest jobs on the roughest oceans.

From arctic icebreakers to high-tech aircraft carriers, these monsters face everything the oceans can throw at them; but how does something so massive work?

The series reveals each ship's engineering secrets, from how they were built to how the crews keep them running.

Each episode takes an in-depth look at one of these vast ships, including the Wallenius Wilhelmsen Thermopylae cargo ship, one of the biggest ships ever built.

There's also the Crown Princess cruise ship that sails to the Caribbean from Florida; the Royal Clipper, which is the Guinness Book of World Record holder as the largest square-rigged ship on earth; and the Pacific Orca, a wind turbine installation vessel.

How do they operate when crossing dangerous global waters? This series sets sail to reveal all.

Channel: Netflix South Africa
TX Time: 10h00
Genre: Comedy, Special

Marc Maron: End Times Fun

The end is near in Marc Maron's newest Netflix original stand-up special, End Times Fun.

In his signature style of raw, honest and thought-provoking comedy, Marc touches on trying to 'stay woke', the importance of taking turmeric, life before cellphones, and vaccinating children against measles, mumps and Marvel movie fans.

Maron wades through a swamp of vitamin hustlers, evangelicals and grown male nerd children, culminating in a gleefully filthy end-times fantasy.

The lizard portal is open, and the sky is on fire.
