TX Time: 20h00
Genre: Drama, Supernatural, Mystery, Afrikaans

Spoorloos 2: Heksejag

Season 2 features a completely new cast and storyline from the first season, although the premise is similar: It is set in a small town, there is a disappearance, a riddle that must be solved and the past has a huge impact on the present.

Adam wakes up after being in a coma for 18 months caused by an accident on the evening of his matric farewell.

His partner died in the accident, but he can't remember anything. His memories end the day before his tenth birthday.

Adam's awakening garners a lot of attention, but not everybody is happy about it. A woman is prowling around the hospital and the doctor is not at ease about it.

When Adam later remembers a traumatic experience, he decides to try and find out what happened the night of the accident.

Does it have anything to do with the girls that were suspected of witchcraft?

Season 2 stars Andahr Cotton as Adam Prinsloo, Lee Visagie as Christa and Gérard Rudolf as Frans Prinsloo, Adam's father.

Others in the cast include Philip Moolman, Elma Postma, Vuyelwa Mpela, Hanli Rolfes and Bertha le Roux-Wahl.

The Restaurant that Burns Calories

Channel: BBC Earth (DStv 184)
TX Time: 19h00
Genre: Documentary, Food, Reality

The Restaurant that Burns Calories

Maitre d' and Extraordinary Places to Eat host Fred Sirieix and GP Zoe Williams open a restaurant with a difference, welcoming 20 unsuspecting diners for a slap-up meal.

It all sounds normal enough, but this restaurant has something unexpected back of house - a functioning gym, where a group of fitness fanatics are poised on exercise bikes, treadmills and rowing machines, ready to burn off every single calorie ordered and consumed by the diners.

This stunt for science strand Horizon is based on the latest scientific research, which suggests that when we are shown the astonishing amount of exercise required to remove excess calories from our bodies, we choose to eat up to 20% less.

The 495-calorie calamari starter demands a punishing hour and 12 minutes on the rowing machine.

The fish and chips takes two hours and four minutes on the exercise bike to burn off, and running for an hour and nine minutes is the exercise equivalent of the chocolate brownie.

Fred and Zoe also delve into the science of calories, including why we need them and why we are collectively eating more than we are burning, a situation which has left nearly two thirds of the population overweight or obese.

They examine new science, learning that our genes influence our weight, not by changing how we metabolise food, but by determining how hungry we feel.

They also delve into our microbiome to discover how a healthy gut could help us burn fat.

Puddings polished off, the diners are let in on the secret gym.

Will the knowledge change their behaviour, as the research suggests, or leave a nasty taste in the mouth?
