Follows a variety of presenters as they tackle all matters male, competing against each other in tasks, test driving cars, reviewing gadgets, giving DIY tips and more, all with the aim of providing men with their own haven - a virtual man cave.

The series delivers a weekly dose of testosterone-driven content to men seeking a hefty helping of adventure.

Now in its seventh season, the show has moved from original broadcaster SABC3 to M-Net and returns with 10 all-new, adrenaline-fuelled episodes.

Bringing their testosterone to the table are returning presenters Siv Ngesi, comedian Jason Goliath and radio jock-come petrol-head DJ Warras.

Joining the team this season is presenter Jonathan Boynton-Lee.

The series – offering insights into the multiple facets of the modern-day man – features a line-up of competitive challenges, adventures, casual conversations, engagements with local heroes and sporting stars, bucket-list adventures, supercars and classic rides.

Exclusive to this season, the guys actively address issues that plague today's society, explore South Africa and its people, discover the mythical bond between man and machine and host casual, non-scripted conversations with top local personalities.

Crimes that Shook the World

Some of the most notorious murderers in recent history are examined.

In the series premiere, "The Wests": Fred and Rosemary West lured vulnerable runaways into their home and murdered them.

How did they conceal their crimes for almost 20 years, and what gave them away?

In the second episode of the weekly triple bill, "BTK": A loner and a misfit, Dennis Rader was not a stereotypical serial killer.

He called himself BTK in honour of his murder method - bind, torture, kill.

In the final episode of the triple header, "Green River Killer": Church-going Gary Ridgway pleaded guilty to the murders of 48 women in November 2003, earning him the most murder convictions in the US.
