Jaws vs. Boats

Sharkfest begins!

Sharkfest is the must-sea shark event of the year and sheds light on one of the most fascinating creatures on the planet.

What makes this year's fin-tastic lineup so special and unlike any other is the devotion to factual science paired with the stunning visuals captured by some of the best ocean videographers in the business.

The only shark event that proves truth is stranger than fiction will take you up close and personal with one of nature's most feared predators, swimming across Nat Geo Wild every Saturday and Sunday this July.

First up: Jaws vs. Boats.

All across YouTube viral videos abound of great whites and other sharks attacking boats with a ferocity and anger that has never been seen before.

The question is why?

Is this simply a case of more people having cameras to video behaviour or is there something else happening?

Dr. Mike Heithaus and PHD Candidate Sara Casareto set out to investigate what's causing this clash between sharks and boats.

Lui Maar Op, Belinda 2

Sitcom which revolves around a group of older shop staff and their bumbling young security chief at a general dealer in George.

Ian & Ander is a small corner shop in George belonging to Ian Jantjies (Duncan Johnson), a middle-aged man who left the bustle of the big city to experience small town serenity.

But because of his three 'older' employees, who for some reason can't be left unattended, Ian only ever experiences havoc and chaos.

Belinda Swanepoel (Brümilda van Rensburg), a former actress, has an obsession with mirrors, spending all of her time looking at herself and forgetting about customers at the cash register.

Annetjie Nel (Annelisa Weiland), a militarist spinster, marches around barking orders at everyone whilst trying to keep an eye on Ian's wife, who likes to take without paying.

Then there is the poor, charming farm hero Frans Wessels (Eric Nobbs), who tries to keep the peace between Annetjie and Belinda, but rarely succeeds.

Together they must face the challenges of old age, but also learn that life is full of second chances and that one is never too old to have fun.

As Season 2 gets underway, it's a few years later and life with Ian & Others is dull and boring.

So dull and boring that Belinda plans to jump off the Bloukrans bridge with the rest of them...
