Isitha: The Enemy

A telenovela created as a spinoff from The Black Door which continues the tale of the Sokhulu family's struggles to keep their family together in the face of adversity as new challenges and new rivals come onto the scene.

The story picks up at a royal homestead in Eswatini where we find out what happened to Chuma Sokhulu, who was presumed dead in The Black Door chapter of the Sokhulu story.

Have you ever wondered what happens when a preacher turns to a life of crime? Isitha: The Enemy explores just that.

The telenovela follows Chuma Sokhulu, a man who left his life as a preacher to become a criminal in a foreign country.

After being presumed dead for a year, Chuma makes a return to his hometown, only to discover that his brother has committed the ultimate betrayal.

With this explosive revelation, an epic sibling rivalry ensues between the Sokhulu brothers.

But soon, they will realise that they have a bigger enemy to face on the horizon.

Will the brothers be able to mend their sibling ties so that they can face this common enemy and reclaim what's rightfully theirs?

In this new chapter, Thobani Nzuza makes a return as Chuma Sokhulu, while Zamani Mbatha will reprise his role as Khaya Sokhulu.

Other characters from the first chapter who will return include Rebecca Mabuza (Linda Sebezo) and Nomsa Sokhulu (Velephi Mnisi).

Dawn Thandeka King plays Royal Chieftess Nomcebo Ngwenya from the eSwatini royal household.

She is joined by Khanyisani Kheswa as Mbuso Ngwenya and Kabelo Thai as Pheko Motaung.

Isitha: The Enemy was created by Mandla N and is produced by Black Brain Pictures.

Murder: Fight for the Truth

This series tells the stories of heroes who cracked the case when the odds were stacked against them.

Heroes who used their expertise and passion to prove the doubters wrong.

Heroes who just knew something wasn't as it seemed.

Heroes who went the extra mile with their investigations.

Heroes who brought killers to justice. Heroes who fought for the truth.

Following a new case in each episode, we'll discover how, against all the odds, they used intuition, skill and hard work, as well as bringing in outsiders with expert knowledge, to go the extra mile and ensure the truth came out.

And in doing so, how they ensured justice was served...

This 10-episode series features six USA stories and four stories from the UK.

Every episode is authored by the hero who drove the search for justice and was instrumental to cracking the case.

This person is the main focus for each episode but they are supported by other key players in the case including families, officers, lawyers, jurors and other professionals involved in the case.

In the series premiere, "A Mother's Love": Ann Ming, the mother of murdered Julie Hogg, was convinced that her daughter had not disappeared by choice.

By changing an 800-year-old law on double jeopardy, Julie's killer was finally able to be held accountable for his actions, becoming the first person to be tried under the new law and found guilty.

Design expert and former editor of Elle Decoration, Michelle Ogundehin, returns as the series judge.

Each week, the designers will be set a new challenge, crisscrossing Britain to take on the interiors of luxury apartments, hotels, school common rooms, shops, shepherd's huts, cafes, luxury holiday lodges and bars.

Their skill and expertise will hopefully create design magic to impress the discerning judges.

Michelle is joined every week by a different guest expert, on hand to offer their advice and appraisal.

The series includes appearances by Matthew Williamson, Guy Oliver, Sophie Robinson, Mary Portas, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, Ross Bailey, Sarah Willingham and Abigail Ahern.

In the Season 3 premiere: Ten aspiring interior designers on the cusp of turning professional take part in the biggest design challenge of their lives.

Competing to win their first official commercial contract, with the Watergate Bay Hotel in Cornwall, the designers face a different commercial brief each week, with their spaces scrutinized by head judge Michelle Ogundehin.

This week, Michelle is joined by fashion designer turned interior designer Matthew Williamson.

The challenge they set is to transform five upmarket rental apartments in Manchester.

Working in pairs, the designers must decorate a living room or master bedroom and a shared home office.

They have just two days, £1,500 and two tradesmen to help them get the job done.
