The Mallorca Files

Channel: BBC Brit (DStv 120)
TX Time: 20h00
Genre: Police Procedural, Drama

The Mallorca Files

Set amongst the vibrant international community of the Spanish island, The Mallorca Files centres around Detective Miranda Blake - an introvert who is used to living by the rules - and her German counterpart Max Winter, whose approach to policing is based on gut-instinct, with little interest in process.

Their dynamic - sometimes in sync, but mostly not - sets the rich humour and playful tone of the series, which marks a return to the police caper.

The Mallorca Files plays out against the backdrop of sun-drenched locations and glamourous lifestyle of the Balearic island few Brits get to see.

In the series premiere, "Honour Amongst Thieves": British police officer DC Miranda Blake is in Palma de Mallorca to escort a known criminal turned supergrass, Niall Taylor, back to the UK.

When things don't go according to plan her world is turned on its head, and she decides to conduct her own investigation in order to track down the truth.

Reluctantly paired with wise-cracking German detective Max Winter by local police chief Ines Villegas, the two work through Niall's gang, winding up at Niall's wake and meeting meeting Niall's daughter Claire and ex-wife Stella.

But with a rising body count and the subsequent disappearance of Claire, things look like they're getting out of hand.

When Miranda and Max spot a vital clue, a frantic car chase ensues, and the killer is at last revealed. But when Max finds himself in difficulty, Miranda is left with a dilemma: save Max or let the killer go?

Back in Palma, Miranda has to explain events to her senior officer, Abbey Parker, which leads to a life-changing decision.

The Last Dance

Channel: Netflix South Africa
TX Time: 10h00 (all episodes)
Genre: Documentary Series, Sport

The Last Dance

The series chronicles one of the greatest icons and most successful teams in sports history, Michael Jordan and the 1990s Chicago Bulls, and features never-before-seen footage from the 1997-98 season as the team pursued its sixth NBA championship in eight years.

In the fall of 1997, Michael Jordan, Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf and head coach Phil Jackson agreed to let an NBA Entertainment film crew follow the team all season long.

The result would be a remarkable portrait of an iconic player and a celebrated team – a portrait only now being revealed, more than two decades later, in The Last Dance.

As the series weaves its way through the tumultuous 1997-98 season, you will be transported back to how it all began – from Jordan's childhood roots, the Bulls' dire circumstances before Jordan's arrival and how the team was built after drafting Jordan in 1984, to the struggles that eventually led to the team's first NBA championship.

As the series takes the audience through the Bulls' first five championships, experience the off-court challenges, struggles and triumphs that were a part of the culture-shifting phenomenon created by Jordan and the Bulls.

It's an unlikely scenario that serves as a fascinating backdrop for the inside tale of the 1998 championship run, with extensive profiles of Jordan's key teammates including Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman and Steve Kerr, head coach Phil Jackson, and featuring dozens of current-day interviews with rivals and luminaries from basketball and beyond.

All throughout, the tension and conflict that defined that final championship run are very much on display.
