TX Time: 10h00 (all episodes)
Genre: True Crime, Documentary Series

Killer Sally

Interviews with friends, family and Sally McNeil herself chart a bodybuilding couple's rocky marriage — and its shocking end in a Valentine's Day murder.

Killer Sally is the story of bodybuilding's most notorious crime.

On Valentine's Day 1995, national bodybuilding champion, Ray McNeil, was choking his bodybuilder wife, Sally, when she grabbed a gun and fatally shot him twice.

With a documented history of domestic abuse, Sally claimed it was self-defence, a split-second decision to save her life.

The prosecution argued it was premeditated murder, the revenge of a jealous and aggressive wife.

They called her a "thug," a "bully," a "monster".

The media referred to her as the "brawny bride" and the "pumped-up princess".

Sally says she spent her life doing whatever it took to survive, caught in a cycle of violence that began in childhood and ended with Ray's death.

This complex true crime story examines domestic violence, gender roles, and the world of bodybuilding.

Imboni Yama Tekisi

The taxi world is a multi-billion-rand industry and one of the most dangerous fields to work in – but it is also shrouded in secrecy.

This reality show lifts the curtain on the lives of taxi bosses, starring four taxi owners giving unprecedented access into their lives and what it takes to thrive in this industry.

Set in KwaZulu-Natal, Gauteng and Mpumalanga, Imboni Yama Tekisi gives us a front row seat into the lives of some of the bosses who run the taxi industry in South Africa.

The show explores how they conduct business, their family dynamics and how they stay safe while running their empires.

At the heart of the show is Nthabiseng Keroane, widowed taxi boss and entrepreneur.

Bubbly, larger than life and a socialite, she also enjoys a 90,000+ following on TikTok.

Hers is a story of a woman who took over the family business following her husband's death.

It hasn't been easy, not only due to it being a male-dominated industry, but also because she was never involved in the business while her husband was alive, so she's had to learn everything from scratch after his death.

Then there are the Biyela twin brothers, Lindokuhle and Zakhele, who have more than 20 children between them and are navigating several co-parenting relationships.

Having fled for their own safety from Empangeni, we will see them handling the taxi business despite the absence of their third business partner, their brother.

Rounding things off is Sabelo Ndaba, who has survived multiple attempts on his life, one of which left him in a wheelchair.

A farm owner with dozens of cows, the Mpumalanga-based boss is also juggling his polygamous lifestyle, while trying to deal with the mother of his child, who is limiting access to the little one.

From navigating tricky family relationships to running their businesses, Imboni Yama Tekisi is the taxi industry like you've never seen it before.
