Almost Family

Channel: M-Net (DStv 101)

Almost Family

Based on the Australian series Sisters, this is the story of an unusual family formed through extreme odds.

Exploring such hot-button issues as identity, human connection and what it truly means to be a family, this unconventional dramedy taps directly into the zeitgeist, harnessing the emotional complications that new generations of IVF-bred children all face.

Only child Julia Bechley (Brittany Snow) finds her life turned upside down when her father, Leon Bechley (Timothy Hutton), reveals that - over the course of his prize-winning career as a pioneering fertility doctor - he used his own sperm to conceive upwards of a hundred children.

Reeling from this explosive revelation, Julia discovers two new sisters – her former best friend, Edie Palmer (Megalyn Echikunwoke) and an ex-Olympic athlete, Roxy Doyle (Emily Osment).

As these three young women begin to embrace their new reality, Julia must figure out what life is like without Leon by her side; Edie comes to grips with her burgeoning sexuality, as her marriage falters; and Roxy faces adulthood out of the spotlight.

Against all odds, the three women will attempt to form an untraditional bond as sisters, even as they must welcome a tidal wave of new siblings into their rapidly expanding family.

Wildest: Islands

Channel: Curiosity Channel (DStv 185)
TX Time: 19h00
Genre: Wildlife, Nature, Documentary

Wildest: Islands

Islands can be home to the most extreme examples of life, as nature evolves in the most dramatic way.

Sometimes isolated for hundreds of thousands of years, pockets of individuals adapt to survive, fuelling a rapid and continuous development of new species.

Some of the Zanzibar archipelago's bizarre creatures have developed to an enormous size.

The world's largest crab scales trees in search of coconuts, and clouds of giant bats fill the skies at dusk.

Under the cover of darkness, giant leatherback turtles visit Trinidad's beaches to lay their eggs.

Dominica's volcanic heritage gives it fertile soils, making the island rich in flowering plants.

Situated 1,000km west of Ecuador, the Galapagos archipelago has been so little exposed to humans, it allowed Charles Darwin to study and rethink the laws of nature.

This is a celebration of these spectacular island locations, and the people and wildlife who call them home.
