Big Brother Mzansi 3

They're all South African. They're all outspoken.

They will live together in a specially constructed house, completely isolated from the outside world, watched 24/7 by viewing audiences across the country.

Each week housemates will nominate each other for eviction.

The housemates who get the most nominations will have to survive a viewer vote. If they don't, they're evicted out of the game.

Only the last person remaining at the end will take home the mega jackpot of R2-million.

Along the way Big Brother, that infamous and legendary character at the centre of it all, will no doubt be introducing his own twists and turns into the game.

Given that this is a 100% South African version of Big Brother, and South Africa has 11 official languages, housemates can speak in any of these languages although Big Brother himself will primarily communicate in English.

The new season aims to be the hottest yet.

In addition to the 24-hour channel (DStv 198), daily shows and weekly highlights, this year features the return of Shower Hour.

There will also be Friday game nights, Saturday night parties hosted with Channel O featuring the hottest DJs and, of course, the twists and turns of Sunday night evictions.

This season sees a new host in Lawrence Maleka, replacing Lungile Radu from the first two seasons.

Pushing the Line

Channel: Discovery Channel (DStv 121)
TX Time: 20h00
Genre: Docu-Reality, Sport, Adventure

Pushing the Line

What is it like to walk on a line, hundreds of feet above the ground, on a one-inch rope that's thinner than your belt?

And why would anyone ever do it?

Highlining is the coolest sport that you've never heard of... until now.

Pushing the Line follows some of the top highliners and the up-and-comers of the sport, who live together and push each other to take on the craziest places to set lines and break records.

Few people will experience highlining themselves.

It requires you to be strong physically with incredible athleticism, balance, stamina to walk a long line.

But you also must be strong mentally – even just to attempt getting on the line.

This series takes you inside the world of these fearless athletes, who live every day like it could be their last.

What answers are they searching for out on that line?

This is an intimate look at what motivates these athletes to risk it all every day.

While what they do on the line is wild, their life together off the line can be crazier including the couple who got married – in the most public way possible – while suspended 500 feet above Moab, Utah.

Their wedding was viewed more than 100-million times on social media.

Now divorced, the couple is figuring out how to coexist with each other for the first time.

But can they set aside their tumultuous past in a tight-knit community where everyone knows your business?

For 30 days, cameras captured some of the top heavy-hitters of the sport including Spencer Seabrooke; Andy Lewis, the Godfather who helped invent this sport and appeared with Madonna at the Super Bowl; and Mia Noblet, who holds the world record for longest walk (for women and men).

And nipping at their heels are a group of young, hungry athletes and personalities looking to put their name in the record books.

The crew will set new lines or attempt new stunts every week in some of the beautiful and challenging locations in the American West – including Moab's iconic Fruit Bowl, where a line is strung 500-feet above the desert floor.

The team will also climb the 400-foot Castleton Tower to string lines from one ledge to the next and take on the Colorado Rockies where they'll attempt to break the US record with the highest kilometre walk in history.

Each year, these top athletes come together to test themselves and break records.

But as they push the line, will they push themselves too far?

AZF: French Factory Explosion

21 September 2001, 10h17.

In the AZF factory, in Toulouse, France, a storage of around 300 tons of ammonium nitrate exploded, injuring thousands and killing 31 people.

Twenty years later, never seen before footage and unpublished interviews show the minute by minute of this industrial disaster, the biggest in French history since WWII.

Couples Therapy 2

Channel: 1Magic (DStv 103)
TX Time: 21h15
Genre: Docu-Reality

Couples Therapy 2

Couples Therapy follows eight months of therapy sessions with Dr. Guralnik as she guides couples through honest confrontation with each other, revealing real-life struggles and extraordinary breakthroughs.

The second season features three entirely new couples working through intense conflicts.

There's a single mother's unplanned pregnancy which forces her to examine if the father is actually the man she wants to be with.

Then there's a woman who confronts her husband for failing to deliver the life she wants.

Finally there's the raw trauma of near-fatal alcoholism which reveals unexpected consequences for a young gay couple.

The season also sheds an intimate light on at-home confinement after last year's COVID-19 shutdown, forcing every couple - and Dr. Guralnik herself - to examine profound changes within their daily lives.
