Beef! is a show dedicated to helping individuals 'squash their beef'.

The show follows host Rufus 'DJ Rhee' Moremi as he helps entrants sort out issues they have with others for the sake of peace in the future.

The series takes two people who dislike each other because of a physical or personal altercation that happened between them in the past and puts them in a space where they confront each other.

The hope is that they'll squash the beef instead of knocking each other's teeth out.

The show allows for concerned third parties to write into the show in order to help their friends or loved ones find a way to end their "beef" before the issue escalates.

The Goes Wrong Show

Channel: Vuzu (DStv 116)

Genre: Comedy

The Goes Wrong Show

Comedy series from the team behind The Play That Goes Wrong.

The series sees The Cornley Drama Society undertaking another (overly) ambitious endeavour, held back by prolific over-actor Robert Grove, the screen-hogging Sandra Wilkinson and the artistically mistrusted Dennis Tyde.

In the series premiere, "The Spirit of Christmas": Every week, the well-meaning amateurs of the Cornley Dramatic Society perform a half-hour play: a horror story, a wartime drama, a legal thriller, a period romance, a deep south melodrama and a Christmas fable.

And every week, the performance goes terribly, terribly wrong.

Sets collapse, special effects fail, actors dry - life, limb and the studio audience are threatened. But the show must go on...

A joyful Christmas tale as the Cornley Drama Society present the story of Santa and his elves trying to bring festive happiness to a sad little girl and her constantly-fighting parents.

Can the magical toy machine restore her Christmas cheer? Or perhaps Mr Snowman and his enchanting dance will raise her spirits?

We'll never know, as an already surly Santa indulges in too much Christmas sherry and contrives to ruin everything.

Crackers explode, an elf is trapped in a confined space for the duration of the show and the toy machine attempts to eat the snowman alive.

Also, there are songs, and these don't go well.

In the second episode of the weekly double bill, "The Pilot (Not The Pilot)": This week the Cornley Drama Society has chosen to put on a Second World War drama, rarely performed because of its historical inaccuracy and poor research.

Director Chris plays Rufus Heal, a dashing pilot reduced to a desk job solving German codes in a top secret Allied facility after losing his leg, assisted by uptight Englishwoman Valerie Sky and French codebreaker Camille, under the watchful eye of Wing Commander Wickham.

They also find a part suitable for Dennis' dubious skills - a telegraph machine.

Will they crack the code and unmask the spy in their midst in time to win the Vietnam war?

Sadly for our gang, many disasters await - Rufus' lost leg won't behave itself, Camille's grasp of French is sub-par, Hitler spends more time on set than planned, and Annie is forced to play the dastardly Wing Commander after Chris' father fails to show.

And the telegraph machine takes on a life of its own.

Rogue Shark?

In October 2018, the remote islands of the Whitsunday in Australia were rocked by a series of shark attacks.

Extreme Salvage Squad

TX Time: 18h40
Genre: Reality

Extreme Salvage Squad

Any job, any time... Enter the high-stakes world of marine recovery and rescue with Extreme Salvage Squad.

They are faced with a region devastated by a recent Category 4 cyclone that caused massive damage and left the area littered with broken vessels and vehicles.

But filled with true Aussie grit and a determination to see the job done, the team meet every challenge head-on - and know how to have a little fun along the way.

Stuffed with tension, excitement and camaraderie, this series is all about overcoming adversity to help keep one of the world's most beautiful coastlines in the best possible condition.

People who are owed a debt demand their money and belongings back.

Examples include a man buying a flashy car and upgrading to a new apartment, but failing to settle a R2,000 debt to his friend.

There is also a heartbroken man who bought his ex-girlfriend a car before she cheated on him - and now he wants it back.

In the series premiere, "Bonakele & Aaron": Bonakele from Witbank lent her brother-in-law Aaron R50,000 in 2015.

He constantly makes promises that he will pay her back but as yet she has not received a single cent from him.

Survivor South Africa 6: Philippines

In the sixth season of the franchise, Survivor South Africa: Philippines, the 18 castaways will be exposed to the beauty of thousands of islands connected by Pacific waters, each one home to distinct forests and bays which are teeming with indigenous wildlife, both beautiful and dangerous.

Their aim will be to outwit, outplay and outlast their fellow competitors to endure longer than any previous South African winner: to Day 39, where the finalists will have to convince a jury of ousted contestants, whom they either directly or indirectly had a hand in voting out of the game, to give them the title of Sole Survivor and the cash prize that goes with it.

In Survivor South Africa you can be whoever you want to be - the only thing that matters is how you play the game.

So who will connive, strategise and physically and mentally triumph over others to become the next winner of Survivor South Africa?

The Season 6 premiere is a special 90 minute broadcast filled of gruelling challenges, social dynamics and, of course, the first elimination at Tribal Council.

For the first time in Survivor South Africa history, the castaways will also have to Outwit, Outplay and Outlast their fellow contestants for 39 days, instead of the usual 27 day period of past seasons.
