The South African Story with Archbishop Desmond Tutu

This series, filmed in April 2010, takes Archbishop Tutu to seminal locations across South Africa, from the dizzying heights of God's Window in Mpumalanga to the banks of the Limpopo River in the far North East.

The journey traverses all nine provinces, reflecting on the roots of our nation, our struggle and our glorious emergence as the gateway to Africa.

It is far more than a travel series, though - it covers history, culture, destination and politics.

As a far leading participant in the anti-apartheid struggle and then as the chairperson of South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission, Archbishop Tutu has seen and heard more stories than most on his travels through the country.

Revenge Body with Khloé Kardashian

Participants get the opportunity to reinvent themselves from the inside out with the help of Khloé and some of the best fitness and nutrition experts in the world.

Whether these men and women have been dumped, are trying to mend relationships, or facing any of life's other tough challenges, Khloé - who has overcome her own body issues - is there to help.

Khloé personally gets to know them, finds out what has broken them down, and gives them the tools they need to build themselves back up.

The result is a journey to obtain the ultimate revenge.

With the help of Khloé's elite celebrity trainers, stylists and glam squads, participants work hard to transform their bodies over the course of 12 weeks to be best versions of themselves.

The results display a significant change for each participant, leading to a final reveal to the world and confront with those who doubted them.

From a man who gained weight after being dumped by his ex to a couple that both packed on the weight during their relationship, each episode features everyday people tackling what's holding them back from being the best they can be.

Jorge doesn't believe in diets - he believes in lifestyles, which is why on his plan, fitness begins in the kitchen.
