Slim Vang sy Baas

In each episode of this fun-filled game show, two families go head to head in a livingroom-style studio where they must duke it out through a series of trivia-based and enjoyable challenges.

Teammates are friends, family, colleagues or even neighbours and although things may seem casual, the battle is no joke.

Each team that participates gets R1,500 and there are also big cash prizes at stake.

Slim Vang sy Baas is hosted by Beer Adriaanse.

Travel Man

After conquering the world of technology in Gadget Man, Richard Ayoade wants to take a break.

But while he loves the idea of travel, he hates the reality of holiday.

For Richard, holidays are long, boring and stressful – so he sets out to find the best way of making them more fun, more efficient and much less tedious.

The Travel Man is out to discover the most efficient way to holiday possible.

From Iceland to Barcelona, Istanbul to Marrakech, Richard will be accompanied by a different celebrity each week.

Along with Kathy Burke, Stephen Mangan, Jessica Hynes and Adam Hills, Richard will see and do as much as possible in just 48 hours of holiday.

It's all about maximum holiday value in the minimum amount of time, all made possible by judicious use of ingenious gadgets and apps.
