The Extraordinary Powers of the Human Body

This six-part science series takes viewers all around the world to meet extraordinary people who can do incredible things that most of us simply cannot.

In every themed episode we meet 'superhumans' who reveal what they are able to do.

It also reveals the underlying, scientific truth as to why they are able to do these incredible things, whether it is as a result of their inherent underlying biology, through training and dedication or a combination of them all.

The Comey Rule

Channel: M-Net City (DStv 115)
TX Time: 20h50
Genre: Drama, Miniseries

The Comey Rule

Limited series starring Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom) as former FBI Director James Comey and Brendan Gleeson (Mr. Mercedes) as President Donald J. Trump.

Based on Comey's No. 1 New York Times bestselling book A Higher Loyalty and more than a year of additional interviews with a number of key principals, The Comey Rule is an immersive, behind-the-headlines account of the historically turbulent events surrounding the 2016 presidential election and its aftermath, which divided a nation.

The Comey Rule is not a biopic of one man, but is instead the story of two powerful figures, Comey and Trump, whose strikingly different personalities, ethics and loyalties put them on a collision course.

The Comey Rule takes us on an insider's journey down the corridors of power, where decision-makers struggle to apply old norms to a dramatic new paradigm in the face of Russia's deep and unprecedented penetration into American politics, with the nation's rule of law hanging in the balance.

Each character's actions in these historic months made the careers of some, destroyed the careers of others and helped shape the incendiary political landscape we live in today.

Part 1 of the series examines the earliest days of the Russia investigation, the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails and their impact on Election Night 2016, when Donald Trump stunned the world and was elected president.

Part 2 is a virtual day-by-day account of the tempestuous relationship between Comey and Trump and the intense and chaotic first months of the Trump presidency - where allies became enemies, enemies became friends and truth depended on what side you were on.
