Night Stalker: The Hunt for a Serial Killer
Netflix South Africa
10h00 (all episodes)
True Crime, Documentary Series
The true story of how one of the most notorious serial killers in American history was hunted down and brought to justice.
In the sweltering summer of 1985, a record-breaking heatwave hit Los Angeles, along with a series of murders and sexual assaults that at first seemed disconnected.
The victims were men, women and children. They ranged in age from six to 82. They came from different neighbourhoods, racial backgrounds and socioeconomic levels.
Never before in criminal history had a single killer been responsible for such a grisly array of crimes.
Racing against the clock to stop this nocturnal monster were a young detective named Gil Carrillo from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and the legendary homicide investigator Frank Salerno.
As they worked tirelessly to solve the case, the media hounded their tracks, and panic gripped California.
Told through first-person interviews, archival footage and original photography, this four-part series represents the definitive telling of this iconic L.A. real-life horror story.
It paints a portrait of how it felt to live in fear at a time when absolutely anyone could be the Night Stalker's next victim.

Ghost Nation 2
Travel Channel (DStv 179)
The "OG" paranormal investigators that started it all - Jason Hawes, Steve Gonsalves and Dave Tango - are back for all-new adventures to the other side.
Only this time, they're not alone...
Now, the pioneers of the genre respond to urgent calls from local paranormal investigators nationwide who have reached a dead end with their vexing personal cases.
The trio is getting back to its roots, helping homeowners who are dealing with harrowing hauntings and people whose lives have been overtaken and threatened by unexplained phenomena.
Each of the episodes features a high-stakes case and a robust, multi-stage investigation that begins with a shocking paranormal story and a tantalising piece of evidence.
Stories featured include a couple who recently gained notoriety when their nanny-cam footage captured a ghostly shadow figure walking by their baby's crib; a local team that captured possible shadow people moving throughout a notorious haunt; and an investigator who is actually scratched by an unseen phantom.
Armed with brand new state-of-the-art technology and their meticulous methodology, the team, under its new banner, United Paranormal Research Organization (UPRO), will face the most challenging and dangerous paranormal mysteries the USA has to offer.
In every investigation, collecting evidence is just the beginning. The team isn't merely conducting a cursory review of the case.
With the help of their local contacts, team members will embed themselves in the community, conducting multi-day investigations in an effort to track down the true source of these hauntings and restore peace to the living... and the dead.
In the Season 2 premiere, "An Unholy Haunting": Jason, Steve, Dave and Shari head to Waynesville, Ohio, to investigate claims of paranormal activity at a former Catholic church.
The team suspects a disgraced priest may be behind the scratches, bizarre apparitions and chilling EVPs.
