Away for Repair

Hosted by actress Rami Chuene and life coach Romeo Mabasa, this series showcases the heartfelt stories of ordinary people taking much-needed time away to mend broken bonds.

The series will see the teams compete in various adventures that will challenge them physically and mentally, all in a bid to repair their broken bonds.

The teams include a pair of varsity friends dealing with a deep betrayal, sisters yearning for acknowledgment of past hurts, a married couple that has lost their foundation of trust and a mother and daughter in deep need of unlearning their toxic behaviours.

The winning team will win an all-expenses paid weekend stay at the Skukuza Safari Lodge situated in the Kruger National Park.

The runners-up will walk away with an all-expenses paid weekend getaway to Golden Gate Highlands National Park.

The Billion Dollar Code

No one knows this true story.

In Berlin in the '90s, two friends - Carsten and Juri - create Terra Vision, something that seemed impossible at the time: the precursor to Google Earth.

25 years later, the German computer nerds are facing the global corporation in court.

Based on true events, this miniseries tells the incredible story of two German computer pioneers who go to court for their rights as inventors of the Google Earth algorithm in a battle against a seemingly invincible opponent.

From the hacker scene in post-reunification Berlin in the 1990s to the idealistic world of early Silicon Valley and the harsh reality of a multi-million dollar lawsuit, The Billion Dollar Code tells of a great friendship, loyalty and the question of justice in the digital age.
