Hot Roads - The World's Most Dangerous Roads

Hot Roads - The World's Most Dangerous Roads

A risky expedition along thoroughfares that harbor mortal danger for those who use them or live on them.

They run through deserts, ice and snow, deep in the jungle, along water and over mountains: the world's most dangerous roads.

Many risk their lives along these roads. Yet for lack of alternative routes, locals continue to use them for transportation.

This series tells stories that take place along the routes, of the people who live along them and for whom these are part and parcel of their personal destiny.

The landscapes through which these routes wind are unique and exert their never-ending fascination even on regular travelers.

Hot Roads accompanies people on adventures where the journey is its own reward.

The filmmakers tag along in the driver's seat of trucks, on the rear benches of busses and in the passenger seat of regular cars to experience the danger and beauty these roads offer from different perspectives – through the windshield and in the rear-view mirror simultaneously.

In the series premiere, "The Manali-Leh Highway – India's Road to the Himalayas": It is a road of mountain passes and India's access to the roof of the world – the Himalayas.

This 475-kilometre-long route at the northernmost tip of the Indian subcontinent connects the cities of Manali and Leh at the heart of the Ladakh region.

400 Years: Taking the Knee

Channel: HISTORY (DStv 186)
TX Time: 20h15
Genre: Documentary, History

400 Years: Taking the Knee

This two-part special begins with first years of the European slave trade but fundamentally focuses on the individuals who fought and struggled against colonialism, slavery and their legacies.

Insisting on the importance of individuals and their ability to resist historical conditions – to shoulder burdens and to break down walls – it covers 400 years of intertwining British and American histories.

Divided in two parts, the first investigates the different struggles in the gradual labour of breaking down the system of slavery.

It looks to the violent resistance that occurred within the Atlantic system, inspiring defiance and fracturing the machine piecemeal, but also to the literary and political organising in the abolitionary process.

The second part deals with very different sorts of struggles: the legacies of slavery and colonialism and how they have been patterned out and resisted up to the present day.

It turns again to literary composers, political organisers and to especially resonant symbolic moments, reminding us of the importance of remembering those who have pioneered, resisted, spoken out and paved the way.

Tiger is a two-part documentary offering a revealing look at the rise, fall and epic comeback of global icon Tiger Woods.

Seng'Khathele brings together couples seeking closure and allows them to unpack all the reasons that have bought them to the point of wanting to end the relationship.

The reasons for wanting to break up include deceit, drug addiction, infidelity, financial problems, abuse and even bedroom problems.

The series is hosted by Lerato Mvelase, with post counselling and therapy being offered to the couples featured on the show.

The first two seasons focused more on gender-based violence issues; Season 3 diversifies the reasons why people break up.

In the third season there are fresh, young, vibey stories that speak to the common issues of why people break up.

These include when a partner won't sleep with you, when you feel you've run out of love for them, when they stop providing financially or when religious issues come between couples.

Expect diverse stories that ordinary South Africans break up with their partner for.

In the Season 3 premiere: Katlego believes Vusi has been using witchcraft on her.
