Owl Rescue

Follow Danelle and Brendan Murray as they save owls, birds and other animals in South Africa.

Danelle and Brendan rescue and protect injured and compromised owls from the vastly urbanising South African suburbs.

Although they predominantly fight for the survival of these often-misunderstood birds of prey - no other animal gets left behind when the call comes through.

The rescue missions will include aiding them out of traps they have found themselves in and relocating them after locating sanctuary for them.

Throughout the series, the pair also prioritise releasing animals back into their natural, wild habitats as well as rehoming certain creatures where necessary.

Advanced animal care is showcased in this series as technology such as lasers are used to help the injured animals.

In the series premiere: Danelle and Brendan get a call to relocate barn owls nesting in the roof of a house.

The Owl Rescuers take the baby barn owls back to their sanctuary in Hartebeespoort for pre-release preparation.

In the second episode of the weekly double bill: Brendan takes an owl out of a roof space from a house in Roodeport, Danelle feeds a baby squirrel and Brendan and Danelle retrieve a sparrow hawk from a warehouse.

War Gamers

World War II. The Battle of the Atlantic.

Admiral Karl Dönitz, head of the Nazi's U-boat fleet, brings Britain to the brink of starvation by sinking their merchant ships.

His U-boats strike without warning and disappear immediately. Dönitz's deadly tactics are mystifying.

If the vital transatlantic shipping route is cut off, Britain will be forced to surrender, and the Allies will lose their last foothold in Western Europe.

The Royal Navy must find a way to defeat Dönitz, so they turn to retired war gamer Gilbert Roberts.

Roberts is set a daunting task – to use war gaming to decipher Dönitz's tactics and find a way to sink the U-boats.

To do this, he needs a team, but the navy can't spare any men.

He is forced to turn to a group of women from the Women's Royal Navy Service (WRNS), popularly known as the Wrens.

With Jean Laidlaw, one of Britain's first female chartered accountants, and a small team of bright young women, Roberts acts out naval battles and war game scenarios on a linoleum floor using chalk and wooden model ships.

By putting themselves into the minds of the U-boat captains, Laidlaw and the Wrens decipher Dönitz's tactics and turn the tables on the U-boats, developing countertactics to destroy them.

Their work enabled the Allies to turn the tide of the war, outthink the U-boats and defeat Nazi Germany.

The Wrens were some of the greatest war gamers of their generation, but their legacy has been ignored.

Now the story of these forgotten war gamers can be told.

In the series premiere, "The Mastermind": Following capture in World War 1, German U-boat Commander, Karl Dönitz, spends his exile developing 'Wolfpack tactics', hoping one day to return to the fight against the Royal Navy.

Under the growing threat of another European conflict, Royal Navy commander Gilbert Roberts devises wargames of his own but his career is cut short when he contracts tuberculosis.

With the rise of Adolf Hitler to power, Germany reconstitutes its U-boat force, now commanded by a man returned from exile, Karl Dönitz.

In Britain, the woman who will frustrate his strategies prepares a group of bright girls for a naval career.

Amongst them, Jean Laidlaw, who will become one of the greatest wargamers of her generation.

When World War 2 breaks out, The Royal Navy must act before Dönitz's top U-boat commanders starve the country into submission.
