Channel: Vuzu (DStv 116)

Marry Me Now SA

Reality series based on the "Marry Me Now" format in which women plan an entire wedding with the help of friends and relatives before 'ambushing' their partners with on-the-spot proposals.

Each week the show follows one woman who has had enough of waiting for a ring. She takes the lead in her life and relationship and prepares her own wedding in just a few days - without the groom-to-be's knowledge.

The bride-to-be has just three days to plan her proposal and dream wedding. She is supplied with a wedding planner and a set wedding budget. She chooses her dream décor, cake, flower arrangement, food menu, her partner's suit and wedding dress.

Her family and friends as well as her partner's relatives are all in on the scheme. It's her task to get them all to show up on her big day and keep her plan a secret until her big reveal.

On the third day she surprises her partner in her wedding dress with an ambush proposal. If he says no, it's all over... but if he says yes, they tie the knot on the spot.

Host Talitha Ndima chronicles the journey with the bride-to-be as the wedding preparations take place. She probes the bride-to-be for all the important relationship information in order to get to know the pair better.

Talitha also ensures family members keep the wedding plans under wraps until the day of the proposal.

At times she serves as matchmaker, other times counsellor, and her relationship therapist skills are put to the test.

Hoarding: Buried Alive 4

The show returns for a fourth season, revealing the heartbreaking yet astonishing stories of extreme hoarders.

Each episode examines hoarders as they struggle to regain control of their uncontrollable behaviour.

This emotional attachment to objects is a debilitating condition that knows no demographic and if left untreated can destroy lives and break up families.

Challenged by expert therapists and professional organisers, the hoarders attempt to reclaim their lives and relieve the distress.

TLC begins Season 4 with the poignant story of 51-year-old Cary, who is both a compulsive hoarder and Elvis impersonator hiding behind his King of Rock 'n' Roll garb.

Over the course of two decades, Cary's paralyzing obsession with Elvis has taken over every inch of his 600 square foot apartment located in the outskirts of Manhattan.

Now, with a home virtually uninhabitable and a bank account almost empty, Cary faces the possibility of parting ways with his memorabilia.

Causing life changing ramifications, his obsession has crossed over into the realm of compulsive hoarding.
