Die Moordenaar in My Familie
VIA (DStv 147)
True Crime, Documentary Series, Afrikaans
Six-part series that examines crimes through the lens of the killer's family members.
Mixing the horrific details of the crimes committed with the sometimes happy memories, each episode charts the killer's horrific descent from family member to murderer from a very personal point of view.
Were there any early signs of the killer's intentions? Did they have any idea of the horror that lay ahead? How did they feel when they discovered the terrifying truth?

Each story includes news coverage, personal archive information, testimonies from police officers and journalists involved in the case, and psychological analysis from experts exploring how the family dealt with the trauma.

HISTORY (DStv 186)
Previous Forged in Fire Champions return to the forge for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to square off against the Forged in Fire Masters in the highest stakes forging competition yet.
The challenges require higher skillsets and there are more tests to pass.
First, the smiths must prove they have what it takes to challenge an icon by beating each other in a series of win-or-go-home forging challenges.
Then the remaining two smiths - one of our seasoned judges and one hopeful competitor - will compete to create a fully functioning blade that will be evaluated and tested.
If the challenger can find a way to prevail against the judge in an intense bladesmithing showdown, he'll walk away with $10K and eternal bragging rights.
In the series premiere, "Short Sword Damascus": Three Forged in Fire champions return to the forge hoping to defeat one of our three judges: Ben Abbott, Dave Baker, or J Neilson.

After forging signature blades and a Khanda, one champion survives to enter their toughest challenge yet, competing against a judge.
Tasked with making a short sword with just eight hours on the clock, will the champion prove they have what it takes to Beat the Judges?
