Dinner Date South Africa 2

South African version of the British culinary dating show format which gives one person each week the chance to find true love over three meals cooked by a blind date in their own home.

The local series features contestants being given five menus, each put together by a potential blind date.

The five ladies or men behind the menus all come up with a three course meal, but the contestant will only be having dinner with three of them.

He or she will choose their dates based on the menus they most like the look of.

But when the dinners have been eaten and the dates are done, who will they want to see for seconds?

Reasonable Doubt 3

Channel: Investigation Discovery (DStv 171 / StarSat 223)
TX Time: 21h50
Genre: True Crime, Documentary Series

Reasonable Doubt 3

In criminal cases in the USA, the law states that the defendant's guilt must be established beyond a reasonable doubt – but are convictions always so clear cut?

In this true crime series, retired homicide detective Chris Anderson and criminal defence attorney Melissa Lewkowicz open controversial murder cases and reexamine the evidence.

From the small-time drug dealer convicted of murder in an apparent botched robbery to a man convicted of the murder of his pregnant ex-girlfriend, none of these cases are quite what they seem.

Working together and employing their years of experience in criminal cases, Chris and Fatima advise the desperate families of those convicted whether it's time to appeal or to accept the verdict, once and for all.

In the Season 3 premiere, "A Shot in the Dark": Michael Crump may have been a small-time drug dealer, but he wasn't violent; that is, until he was convicted of murdering another local dealer in an apparent robbery gone bad.

Now his family has reached out to Chris and Fatima for help.
