Date, Agteruit

If you could turn the dating process upside down and get a glimpse into the future of a new relationship, would you still take the first step?

Date, Agteruit is a dating show in which each week two singles looking for love get to know each other by experiencing the most meaningful milestones in a relationship.

The twist?

These two complete strangers meet each other for the first time while scantily clad in bed, with the cameras rolling.

Every week we meet two singles who are looking for love, but it all happens in reverse.

First, they're between the sheets, then they have a "wedding", then it's a weekend away, then they are introduced to family and friends – and finally they have their "first date".

Will they sense a spark from the start? Will their potential in-laws put out their fire?

And at the end of an intense and insightful day, will they show up to their first date?

TX Time: 17h00
Genre: Food, Talk Show, Afrikaans, Advertiser-Funded

Herman se Mikro-Geheime

SARIE magazine's food editor Herman Lensing is mad about cooking – and is curious about the people around him.

In this cookery-meets-talk show, he combines his two loves.

In each episode, Herman is joined by a celebrity guest in his kitchen where he'll show them just how delicious (not to mention easy) microwave cooking can be.

Together they will prep three separate meals before popping the dishes into the microwave – and then it's time to get personal.

As the microwave timer ticks down, Herman will have only a few minutes to ask the guest increasingly probing and personal questions.

In the process, you will not only get to know the celebrities better, but will also get to see how delicious microwave cooking can truly be.

In the series premiere: When chatty radio announcer and TV presenter Tracey Lange visits Herman, the two not only have a good laugh together, but he shares a few dishes for a braai table, which can easily be put in the microwave.
