Face 2 Face

What do you do when your cheating partner won't change their ways, but you still want to salvage the relationship?

Iin Face 2 Face, hurt lovers sit down with their partners and the other party in the hopes of resolving things.

Hosted by actress Noluthando Meje and facilitated by clinical psychologist Vuyo Temba (also on 1Magic's Abasemzini), Face 2 Face brings together three parties in the hopes of finding a resolution for all involved.

Each episode features conversations that delve deep into the issues behind the affair, hopefully leaving those involved in a better place at the end of it.

Without ambushing anyone, Face 2 Face gives partners the chance to confront their cheating loves in a safe environment, and the "other person" in their relationship will also be present for a three-way dinner date that unpacks the reasons behind the affair.

The goal is not to expose the adulterers or catch them in the act – the show explores the infidelity from all sides: the person being cheated on, the one doing the cheating and the one being cheated with.

The Invasion: The Outbreak of WWII

This 90-minute documentary (broken into two parts) is a detailed look at what happened in Poland during World War II.

Featuring interviews with German, Polish and Jewish survivors, it incorporates real footage and reenactments to detail a story that is virtually unknown outside of Poland.

The documentary sheds light on some of their lives, telling almost forgotten stories. They were the first victims.

The First Day

On 1 September, 1939, Hitler started the most fatal war in world history.

With the invasion of Poland, he did not only aim at destroying the military force of the neighbouring country but also at depriving its people of their livelihood.

The German-Polish two-part series reconstructs how the Führer triggered a chain of events sparking a global conflagration.

It also includes selected interviews with Roman Polanski and Andrzej Wajda who witnessed the attack, when they were children.

The First Victim

Hitler's Poland campaign unleashed a "Blitzkrieg" lasting six weeks only.

However, it was a war of unprecedented brutality, resulting in a tremendous suffering of the Polish people in the long run.

Jews were herded into ghettos; other residents were imprisoned in camps for forced labour or displaced to make way for German settlers.

Hundreds and thousands of them became victims of the Nazi murder machine.

Expedition Bigfoot 2

2020 may just be the year the world turned upside down.

But for the Expedition Bigfoot team, it was a rare moment in time when three very important sets of data converged - and put them one step closer to capturing evidence of the legendary, elusive creature.

The Expedition Bigfoot team have reassembled to review their findings from last season and reevaluate the algorithm to respond to the uptick in Bigfoot sightings just this year.

The advanced data algorithm has revealed a 75,000-acre swatch of Appalachian forest in southeast Kentucky, where the mathematical odds of a Bigfoot encounter are greatly increased during a specific 21-day window.

With limited time and opportunity, the team - including Bryce Johnson (expedition operations); Dr. Mireya Mayor (primatologist); Russell Acord (ex-military/survivalist); Ronny LeBlanc (Bigfoot researcher) - have honed in on promising new targets.

And this year, their analysis has uncovered something new - possible Bigfoot migratory patterns that may reveal precisely where the legendary beasts will be and when they will be there.

Throughout their two-month journey, the team use the latest in advanced technologies to narrow their search within the designated target zones.

As the investigation intensifies, evidence that Bigfoot are in the area begins to pile up - vocalizations, unexplained structures, DNA samples and massive 16-inch footprints that no man could have left behind.

This scientific expedition may finally take one of the world's greatest mysteries out of the pages of legend and lore and into reality.

In the Season 2 premiere, "The Search Continues": After coming closer than ever to proving the existence of Bigfoot in Oregon, the team continues their search in the mountains of Kentucky.

They'll spend the next two and a half weeks in search of Sasquatch - unless it finds them first.

D-Day: Wings of Victory

Could the Allies have won the war without aviation? Discover what went on behind the scenes of the historical air battle in Normandy.

In 1944 in Western Europe, the stage is set for the largest, most ambitious aerial offensive in history.

On the night of 6 June, 4,000 aircraft took off from England in just a few seconds.

Never before had so many planes and gliders been mobilised towards one destination: Normandy.

This offensive was prepared in the strictest secrecy over two years by British and American forces, in order to free the World from Nazi barbarism.

Thanks to the work of historians, we follow the Normandy landings from an aerial perspective for the first time.

We discover what went on behind the scenes of this historical air battle - for example, in one of the most secret bunkers of the Second World War in Uxbridge, and meet its most emblematic heroes.

We get a birds-eye view, boarding a Second World War liaison aircraft to relive, with the help of the pilot, one of the first aerial attacks of that historic night.

See how, on D-Day, the Allies flew 11,000 sorties whilst the Germans flew 300, in a battle that would pave the way to Victory.
