Naked and Afraid of Love
TLC Entertainment (DStv 135)
Today's dating world has become filtered - through the clothes we wear, personas we share online and the preferences we set before we even begin swiping.
But what if the filters, pressures and often unrealistic standards of modern dating were completely stripped away and we were left only with our most primal wants and needs?
What would that expose about who we really are? What kind of partner would we attract?
Would we be distracted by all the beautiful naked bodies or go deeper and forge stronger connections?
In Naked and Afraid of Love, 16 naked strangers ready to find love will strip down and bare it all to answer these questions and more in the ultimate challenge that blends survival, romance and everything in between.
On an unforgettable island paradise in the Philippines, things get wild when eight single men and eight single women come together to embark on the most extreme dating experience of all time as they attempt to find true love while working together to survive the elements and each other.
While endless miles of white sandy beaches and clear turquoise water may seem like the perfect setting to fall in love, don't let this Garden of Eden fool you.
With no food, water or clothes readily available, these singles will be both physically and emotionally vulnerable and forced to depend on each other.
What will happen when the comforts of modern dating are stripped away - starting with the clothes - and they're forced to resort to their most primal instincts to see if their love can survive?
From a sexually fluid Army veteran who's known for his 'take charge' attitude and a PhD student from Honolulu who's tired of her fixer-upper relationships, to a high school teacher looking for a ring on 'that' finger and a San Diego surf instructor who's ready to spear fish, fend off wildlife and ride through this journey like the perfect wave, these stripped down singles each bring their own unique backgrounds, and relationship experiences to the table.
First kisses, fights, and love triangles are on the horizon as the men and women move through the challenge and are introduced to others on the island.
As the paradigm of how people traditionally fall in love is reversed, and awkward first meetings in their birthday suits ensue, the men and women journey through the stages of a courtship.
All the while, figuring out if this other person has the potential to be their forever mate in the real world - and what they look like with their clothes on.
In the series premiere, "The Accidental Erection": Barak finds it hard to hide his attraction for Lauren, while a love triangle forms around Bennett, Candice and Britt.
Rachel and David set their sights on hot couple Stefan and Arielle.

The Great Berlin Escapes
Curiosity Channel (DStv 185)
An ideological and physical barrier fell on 9 November, 1989 in Berlin.
For 28 years, this 155km wall divided Germany in two, separating friends and family.
The recent discovery of some documents reveals the stories of those who managed to escape to join their loved ones, or simply to regain their freedom.
Demonstrating imagination and courage, some dug tunnels to get under the Berlin Wall, others inflated balloons to fly over it, while others disguised themselves with fake uniforms.
By combining archives, reconstitution sequences and intrigue scenes, this documentary plunges us into a Berlin that has now disappeared, through the prism of the art of escape under the GDR.
