Behind History

Go deeper into the stories of the people, places and events that shaped our world.

World-changing wars. Earth-shaking catastrophes. Era-defining icons.

We've all read the headlines – but how much do we really know about what happened?

Behind History takes an in-depth look at the stories behind some of the most momentous events, remarkable ideas and extraordinary people the world has ever known.

Each episode focuses on a single theme and tells six unique stories to deliver a fascinating look into the context of each subject, and in doing so reveals some of its lesser-known facts.

Themes include Icons, which explores the people and places that have become globally recognised symbols; and Breakthrough, which looks at the political, scientific and medical advances that have shaped our world.

Other episodes investigate the themes of War, Leaders, Catastrophe and Fame.

Combining accessible narration and carefully chosen archive footage with a contemporary look and feel, Behind History offers a unique and fascinating take on those key events and characters from our past.

Abandoned 2

TX Time: 18h30
Genre: Reality

Abandoned 2

Actress and TV presenter Phumeza Mdabe hosts Abandoned, a show that helps orphans who were abandoned as toddlers to track down their family members.

Mdabe helps those who were left on park benches, commuter stations or at orphanages to search and reconnect with those who abandoned them – their mothers or fathers – in a reality show that seeks to help them find a sense of belonging.

The show also gives those that gave up their children an opportunity to find and reconnect with their offspring.

Every week, the show tackles different dynamics, and helps the abandoned children ask questions like: Did my mother or father love me?

How do they go to bed knowing that I am out there? Did they ever try to find me or how will my life change when I find them?

The show first seeks to explore what the abandoned child has gone through all these years, before Phumeza sets off to locate their parents to get them to respond to the child's unanswered questions.

The final part of the show sees Phumeza attempt to reunite the two in a physical or virtual meeting to find a sense of closure and way forward.

In the Season 2 premiere: 30-year-old Cecelia Mohalidi is looking to be reconnected with her father, Lucas Mhlaba, after having no connection with him for over 25 years.

She is seeking help with connecting with him.

Miss Quad Webb returns this season as part of the main cast.

New friend, Audra Frimpong joins the ladies as a real estate attorney with a rich Ghanaian heritage and a strong personality and is engaged to Dr. Martin Curry.

Coming up this season:

Dr. Jackie is on a serious mission to step into a new phase of her best life.

Her dream home is complete, her friendship with Dr. Simone is rekindled, and with her medical practice in overdrive for the first time she is contemplating hanging up her coat as full-time MD to pivot to business mogul status.

While Dr. Jackie has shared most of her plans with her husband Curtis, and although he is on board... their expensive lifestyle is a cause for pause.

Will Dr. Jackie really be able to let go and slow down or will she fill the void with more business ventures?

Dr. Heavenly is once again embracing her two biggest passions - expanding her empire and trying to keep her family close - however while she tries to balance her practice, Dr. Damon's practice, opening her new beauty supply store, and preparing for her daughter Alaura to go to college, she is in over her hair.

Also in the friendship department, Heavenly's bond with Contessa and some of the ladies is in need of repair after her social media posts have left everyone giving her the side-eye.

As Heavenly tries to pick up the pieces will she be able to mend relationships and get things back on track?

Dr. Simone is moving in a positive direction, although she has admitted to being "on the petty boat" last year, she has now disembarked for good.

Her friendship with Dr. Jackie is off to a fresh start.

She is in a very happy and loving place with her husband Cecil.

They have a new business venture and are ready to put everything about their relationship on the table to help others by writing a book.

Dr. Simone and Cecil have their sights set on making it on the next bestseller list, only if they can make it through the writing process in one piece.

Dr. Contessa is at a crossroads in her life and is determined to no longer live in confusion.

Dr. Contessa and Dr. Scott are working on getting their relationship on one accord.

She is also venturing into fitness training to compete in a bikini body competition and with her personal life in desperate need of resuscitation, Contessa has stepped away from many of her closest friends including Dr. Heavenly.

Will getting back her beauty queen body give her the confidence to finally stand up for herself in her marriage?

Miss Quad has arrived and is living her champagne wishes and caviar dreams out in her new multimillion-dollar home that she bought on her own.

Quad is no empty-nester as she is moving her mother and her clever six-year-old nephew Mason in with her.

Her life has quickly shifted from an easy-going single life to a full house of family, homework reviews and chaos in the blink of an eye.

She is wearing many hats of responsibility while also trying to make time to take a dip in the dating pool.

Toya has had the weight of life on her shoulders for the past year and she is ready to shed the negativity and move forward.

She and Dr. Eugene have moved into a new home temporarily while they look to build their next forever home.

Toya is also working on mending friendships and her marriage with Dr. Eugene that will be tested when a swirl of rumours begin to brew.

Anila is returning to a bit of normalcy with her husband, Dr. Kiran's practice back in full swing and their home construction finally complete.

With the sudden departure of their long-time nanny, Anila and Dr. Kiran agree to consider moving her parents in to help with the kids, but at what price and on whose terms?

And after a traumatic burglary occurs at her new home Anila is left to pick up the pieces and choose between friends and foes.

New friend Audra is a decedent of African royalty and a successful real estate attorney who is engaged to Dr. Martin Curry.

They are living the American dream along with Audra's son, Kingston.

Her fiancée, Dr. Martin is the man of her dreams and a dentist launching a luxury dental spa practice.

Life After Lockup: Self-Shot

In a time when confined couples all across the US are getting lots of extra and unexpected quality time together, the stars of Life After Lockup have invaluable experience with quarantine and cameras to capture all the drama.

This special four-part event features a mix of unseen footage and self-shot stories captured during quarantine using cellphones, Go Pros, video diaries and interviews recorded on Skype.

The returning couples include:

Andrea & Lamar

After a family vote, Andrea and the kids finally made the move to Los Angeles with Lamar.

Andrea will now have to accept the family decision and start her life in a city she doesn't like.

Lamar plans to take Tennison under his wing and teach him how to navigate the streets - and Andrea is determined to have Priscilla baptized in the Mormon faith - will they be seduced by the allure or will Mormon values win?

Marcelino & Brittany

Marcelino and Brittany are cramped in a small home with three young children - including a new baby.

With tensions beginning to rise, Brittany has invited her mother back into her life after years of addiction sadly kept them apart.

Now that she's back in the picture and Brittany begins to rely on her, will her mother finally come through?

Angela & Tony

Tony's weakness for drugs and prostitutes took a wrecking ball to their wedding dream and turned their newly married life into a nightmare, just 48 hours in.

Tony tries everything to win his bride back, but Angela may have already moved on to another con who she has been involved with for years - even while saying "I do" to Tony.

Meanwhile, her lovelorn best friend Tommy confronts Tony, but will that keep Tony out of the picture for good?

Lacey, John & Shane

After Shane revealed his secret about cheating to Lacey, she decided to kick him to curb and get back with John.

Shane expressed there would be "no coming back from this".

Now, after a couple of months of not seeing or speaking to one another, Lacey has news for Shane.

Michael & Sarah

At the end of the last season, Sarah took a pregnancy test after she spent the night with Michael - an event that he continues to deny.

Michael says he will be there for Baby Rayne's first birthday party, and Sarah is planning a big surprise.

Will these two toxic exes finally put their passionate feud to bed or is this the start of a whole new relationship?
