The History of Mossad
Curiosity Channel (DStv 185)
Documentary Series, Factual
Mossad, the Israeli foreign intelligence agency, was founded on 13 December 1949.
It was supposed to guarantee the existence of Israel - the small country wanted to become a safe haven for Jews from all over the world.
Mossad is considered to be a life insurance against a second Holocaust and its agents not only obtain information, but also have a license to kill.
Israel's threats repeatedly drove Mossad into daring operations that were difficult to hide from the public.
Hardly any other secret service came out of its shadow world as often as Mossad and the Israeli administration does not confirm or deny anything.
The many legends surrounding the notorious foreign intelligence service are meant to make an impression, especially in the Muslim world - and to deter Israel's enemies.
In the series premiere, "The Fight for Survival": When the state of Israel is proclaimed, it finds itself surrounded by enemies.
The intelligence service Mossad is created in response to this – it is Israel's insurance against a second holocaust.
Yet when Israel is founded, the conflict about power in the Middle East escalates and the Arab world declares war on Israel.
The young state becomes a force in the region however and, after starting as an underdog, Mossad becomes a feared intelligence service.

Gardening, Reality Competition
Garden Heroes reveals the hard work and imagination ordinary people have put into their gardens.
The show seeks out the best amateur gardeners to celebrate the joy of transforming your own space.
Each week three contestants will open their gates to the experts - horticulturalist Jimi Blake, garden designer Niall Maxwell and landscape designer Ingrid Swan.
The experts will take the tour, examine every leaf and sniff every flower, to evaluate the gardens.
How the garden is laid out, how the planting has been done, and what features have been added, are all investigated.
But we also want to know what the garden means to the owner.
Maybe it's a place of adventure for kids, perhaps it's a special space for relaxation, or maybe it's a fully functional extension of your home, for entertaining and dining.
How the garden fits into and enhances your life is an important factor too.
kykNET & kie (DStv 145)
Telenovela which takes place in and around a competitive swimming club, Die Swartmarlyne (the Black Marlins), owned by Gys Swarts.
The Swartmarlyne swimming club is a family business in which both Gys' sons, Rossouw and Jacques, are involved.
To increase the tension, Gys' grandchildren, Karla and Johan, also swim for the Swartmarlyne's swimming team.
Karla is a young teenager struggling with the daily pressure of being a champion.
It's not without merit either, since her mother, Sanet, believes she can win a scholarship overseas and never expects anything less than perfection from Karla.
Johan, on the other hand, yearns for his Grandpa Gys's approval, but is just never as good as Karla.
Rossouw and Sanet seem like a happy couple on the surface, but when their past walks through the door, their lives are unexpectedly turned upside down.
Jacques, who still lives on Gys's property, is the smouldering coach for whose attention all the swimming moms and aqua aerobics aunties fight.
But at heart he is a soft teddy bear who more than one person can relate to about their daily hurdles.
It is against the background of this swimming club that we get to know several families who will do everything in their power to keep their heads above water, whilst hoping that their secrets will sink into deep waters.
However... Zelda Joubert, the owner of the beauty salon Skinvestment, cannot stand Gys.
This longtime disapproval of the man gives Zelda a new bounce in her step when she realises that she should rather keep her enemies as close to her as possible.
The fact that the apple of Zelda's eye, Meghan, is not even her own blood makes it very difficult for Pam, her daughter, to rise above Zelda's high standards.
Liewe Lettie (Dear Lettie) runs her own successful café and it's here where the characters find solace for their souls, not only in Lettie's freshly baked goods, but also on her shoulder.
Henry takes on the role of the new caretaker at the club and his adopted son, Tshepo, is a major threat to Johan and his reputation.
When Nina de Wet and her parents, Wim and Rose, form part of the Swartmarlyne swimming club, Karla's heart feels lighter.
The two quickly become bosom buddies and both finally have someone with whom they can share their heart's secrets.
In this community it is easy to feel like a fish out of water and the characters quickly realise that their dirty laundry cannot be easily washed clean with water.
Everyone stands the chance of being exposed for who they really are.
The series stars Justin Strydom, Sandi Schultz, Lea Vivier, Altus Theart, Nadia Valvekens, Werner Coetser, Liam Bosman, Danielle Swanepoel, Rika Sennett, Stiaan Bruwer, Johnny Potsanyane, Tracey-lee Oliver, Jean Henry, Reze-Tiana Wessels, Eloise Cupido, Neels van Jaarsveld, Reandi Grey, Lizz Meiring and Stephanie Baartman.

The Vertigo Years
Curiosity Channel (DStv 185)
Documentary Series, History
This documentary series tells the story of the period between 1900 and 1914 not as a sepia-tinted prelude to catastrophe, but as a time of phenomenal energy and rapid transformation.
It was a social, creative and scientific explosion that would define the horizons of life in the West up to our day.
Throughout the series, particular attention will be paid to similarities, parallels and differences between then and now.
The Vertigo Years shows how industrialisation and urbanisation created new realities and transformed societies with its burgeoning urban centres and mass media and mass sports events, its feminism, nuclear physics, the theory of relativity, abstract art, consumer culture, mass travel and economic globalisation.
Within less than a generation the world had been changed for good.
Throughout the series, particular attention will be paid to similarities, parallels and differences between the period between 1900-1914 and our present (i.e. 2014).
The questions in the background are: In how far have globalisation, mass culture, democratisation and the feeling of living through a period of huge acceleration of history changed the people of 1910?
If our situations are similar, can we be more intelligent now than our great-grandparents were?
In the series premiere, "Behind the Scenes": Paris 1900. The turn of the century comes with numerous changes.
Scientists, philosophers, artists and psychoanalysts develop a completely new view of the world.
