Boer Soek 'n Vrou Special

Boer Soek 'n Vrou returns for a 13th season with new presenter Marciel Hopkins later this year, but tonight sees her host the "Farmers Reveal" special on kykNET.

The series is an international reality format following the fortunes of 10 unmarried farmers participating in the show's campaign to find a partner for everyone.

The 10 farmers are introduced in the special tonight; and as the season gets underway the entire process is laid out and the audience will be invited to participate on the show's website.

The show once again travelled across the country to find 10 free-spirited, lovelorn farmers, and to find out what it is they are looking for in a partner.

Sled Dog Soldiers

August 1915. Two officers of the French Army embark on an incredible secret mission: to bring 450 sled dogs from Alaska and Canada to France.

Will they succeed in carrying out their mission on time?

The objective: to save the Eastern front from German invasion with the help of the sled dogs – the only way to penetrate the snow-filled Vosges and bring much-needed supplies and ammunition to starving and injured French soldiers.

The lives of thousands of soldiers are at stake.

Captain Louis Moufflet and Lieutenant René Haas, aided by the legendary dogsled driver Scotty Allan, have 120 days to cover 10,000 kilometers under enemy threat.

This perilous race against time leads us across the vast and gleaming stretches of Alaska, all the way to the sumptuous landscapes of Quebec.

The three adventurers finally arrive at the Gulf of the Saint Lawrence with their pack of semi-wild dogs only to find themselves ice-bound for the winter.

Once their ship departs they must defy German submarines and face terrible storms to cross the Atlantic and reach France.
