Manche, The African Saint

A young BaPedi girl, Manche Masemola, is murdered at the hands of her parents in rural Limpopo, South Africa, in the early 1900s.

She was just 15 years old.

Almost a century later her likeness is enshrined in a statue above the west door of London's Westminster Abbey.

The documentary follows one of her descendants, Letebele Masemola, as she uncovers the story behind Manche Masemola.

Through interviews with people who are familiar with this story and those from her ancestral village, Letebele not only examines the events surrounding Manche's death but soon also discovers an important discussion around the arrival of missionaries in South Africa and the impact this had on indigenous beliefs during the initial days of contact.

The Masked Singer UK

Comedian and presenter Joel Dommett is the host of this surreal and surprising guessing game that will see 12 famous faces compete to pull off the best performance, with their identity elaborately and imaginatively concealed behind the mask.

Although they won't be judged on their singing, the celebrities will still need to give their best performance to avoid being eliminated and their identities revealed.

Viewers at home will be lead in their quest to discover who the celebrities are by a lively panel made up of broadcaster Jonathan Ross; music artist Rita Ora; TV personality Davina McCall and actor and comedian Ken Jeong.

The panel will have to try and guess the masked singers' identities before they are unmasked as they leave the competition.

In the series premiere: The first six masked singers battle it out - Queen Bee vs Duck, Unicorn vs Butterfly and Chameleon vs Hedgehog.
