The Real Housewives of Durban

Follows the lives of relatively affluent housewives and professional women in suburban Durban.

After two seasons in Johannesburg, the second South African "Real Housewives" franchise now has the extravagant lives, high fashion and business empires of Ethekwini's queens on display.

These ladies open their doors to share their daily lives of conspicuous consumption and splendour, fashion accessories and expensive toys in their driveways.

There's a kind of spice that only Durban can bring – and these housewives are creating their own empires and looking good while doing it.

How the Nazis Lost the War

Told through the lens of the bumbling generals and paranoid Fuhrer who had hit the big time by tragic accident.

Hitler's war machine was feared and ruthless - at least for a time. It cut a swathe through Europe and North Africa and threatened to overrun Russia.

From 1939 into the early 1940s Hitler's dream of a Third Reich and dominance over all of Europe was a distinct possibility.

But then cracks appeared. The war machine became vulnerable.

The history of WWII is usually told through the eyes of the victors - but How the Nazis Lost the War is told through the lens of the bumbling generals and paranoid Fuhrer who had hit the big time by tragic accident.

For the first time, this series tells the decline of Hitler's empire from the inside out - showing how a dysfunctional, bloated, poorly-led gang of thugs managed to fool Germany, then take Europe by surprise.

The Nazis were murderous victors by mistake - and when faced with a mobilised opposition their homicidal ineptitude was writ large.

These stories are told through expert interviews with historians, sociologists and military strategists.

Doomsday: The Missing Children

Doomsday: The Missing Children

The world was captivated in the autumn of 2019, when the news first broke of the disappearance of seven-year-old JJ Vallow and his stepsister, 17-year-old Tylee Ryan, from their home in Rexburg, Idaho.

As months passed, with no answers or clues to their whereabouts, police and family looked to their mother, 46-year-old Lori Vallow, for an explanation.

Ten months later, in June 2020, a shocking discovery was made on the rural Idaho farm of Vallow's husband, Chad Daybell, leaving their friends, family, law enforcement - and the world - to wonder, what happened to JJ and Tylee?

Investigation Discovery takes a deeper look into the events that led up to these disappearances through the eyes of the grandparents who desperately prayed for their return.

ID exclusively follows JJ and Tylee's grandparents, Larry and Kay Woodcock on their journey to find the truth.

As they travel the country, they gather information from local law enforcement, and concerned friends to create a timeline for the children's legal guardian, Lori Vallow.

What they uncover during their investigation is a story too strange to be real.

Join the investigation examining allegations into Lori's religious beliefs, including allegations that Vallow believed she was immortal, and her children had been replaced by zombies.

According to friends and family, Vallow adhered to the belief that the destruction of mankind was imminent, which could potentially explain the bizarre behaviour of Lori and her husband leading up to the discovery of the children.

This three-hour event allows you to explore all of this evidence from the disappearance of the children to the dramatic arrest of Lori Vallow and Chad Daybell for concealment of evidence.

With the trial of Vallow and Daybell on the horizon for 2021, perhaps the Woodcocks, will finally get the answers they so desperately need.
