Kyk wie Praat

A group of mouthy kids between the ages of six and nine are asked questions. Four adult contestants have to guess what the answers of the little critters were.

Sounds easy, right? But children are completely unpredictable, in this game show hosted by De Klerk Oelofse.

The four contestants are eliminated, round by round, until only one remains, as nine children keep the contestants on their toes.

A contestant who earns enough points stands the chance of winning a weekend getaway for the whole family.

There is also the opportunity to win R10,000 per episode. If the money is not won, it is added to a jackpot prize up for grabs in the final episode.

The four contestants who earned the most points in the previous 12 episodes will compete in this season finale.

Four celebs will take part in the first episode: Emo Adams, Margit Meyer-Rödenbeck, Pierre Greeff and Tracey Lange.

The prize money in this episode will go to a charity of the winner's choice.

In the second episode of the weekly double bill, "Road House to Show House": Leslie and Lyndsay help a family struggling to sell their roadside rambler.

Hoping to distract buyers from the road noise outside, the twins make some bold design choices to turn the dated ranch house into a stylish home.

Jan 3

South Africa's first Michelin-star chef, Jan-Hendrik van der Westhuizen, returns for a new season filled with breathtaking culinary creations and locations.

The third season of Jan charts the efforts to launch the chef's latest venture Klein JAN, a new restaurant in the  heart of the Kalahari desert.

Klein JAN is Jan's homecoming project and the subject of Season 3 of JAN.

Whereas seasons 1 and 2 were culinary travelogues that transported you to Italy and France and charted Jan Hendrik's journey to Michelin stardom, the third season is more intimate and closer to home.

Season 3 traces the origin and evolution of an idea that arrives on a swarm of white butterflies and culminates in an opening night under African stars.

Throughout the eight episodes, Jan Hendrik takes you into his confidence about what a farm boy from Middelburg, whose whimsical fusion of South African cuisine with the finest French cooking has won favour with the world's most exacting food critics on the French Riviera, dreams of in the enormous silence of the Kalahari desert.

The setting for Klein JAN is Tswalu Kalahari, the largest private game reserve in South Africa, owned and operated by the Oppenheimer family.

Its journey to culinary destination began several years ago when Jonathan and Nicky Oppenheimer enjoyed a meal at JAN, Jan Hendrik's restaurant in Nice that has become the object of pilgrimage for South Africans traveling through the south of France.

Eventually this meeting led to a hundred-year-old cottage in the proverbial middle of nowhere that would become the logistical and emotional crux of Jan Hendrik's new beginning.

In the Season 3 premiere, "Under African Skies": Jan journeys from the idyllic French Riviera to the great silence of the Kalahari Dessert, a landscape of contrasts and mystical beauty.

Here you can dream and – if you listen carefully – hear the stars.

It is a new beginning full of apprehension and excitement as the Klein JAN restaurant is built.

Gustavo and Teddy deal with pipeline issues and local reporter Irene Abe attempts to understand what's happening to her neighbourhood.

Meanwhile, Leon charts a new path.

In the second episode next week, "Weight": Chaos reigns as Franklin's plans go awry and he turns to an old flame for help.

The season follows troubled but unassuming school teacher named Jamie Burns (Matt Bomer) and a fatal car accident he endures with a college friend, Nick Haas (Chris Messina).

When evidence arises that there's more to the accident than just random tragedy and that Jamie may be covering up his involvement in Nick's death, Harry shifts his focus to his own Dorchester, New York, town and slowly begins building a case that only he can see laid before him.
