TX Time: 20h00
Genre: Drama

Killer Front Page

Drama series which revolves around a journalist who fabricates a front page story in order to boost his flagging career.

The series challenges ambition, ethics and cold-blooded murder.

At the centre of the series is Sol Mojalefa Phiri (Lemogang Tsipa), a journalist whose stale career takes an unexpected turn.

Affected by his father's disappearance and motivated by a childhood promise to become the best in his field, Sol's desperation for recognition makes him fabricate a front page story.

The show follows the ups and downs of Sol, who, on the way to journalistic greatness, becomes involved in a web of lies, crime and unexpected romance.

His rivalry with colleague Black Gert (Emmanuel Gweva) and his clash with detective Sis Connie (Linda Sokhulu) deepen the drama.

As Sol's articles gain him respect and fame, his relationships and values spiral out of control, leading to a consequence that is as unexpected as it is inevitable.

The narrative will leave you wondering: just how far can one go to achieve a dream?

Killer Front Page is produced by Barkers Media.

TX Time: 19h00
Genre: Drama, Comedy-Drama, Period Drama

All Creatures Great and Small 4

An adaptation of best-selling author James Herriot's cherished collection of stories.

Fresh out of Glasgow Veterinary College, James Herriot follows his dream to become a vet in the magnificent Yorkshire Dales.

He soon discovers that treating the animals is as much about treating their owners, and the Dales' farmers are a tough crowd to please.

At Skeldale House, James gets to know his newly formed dysfunctional family: his chaotic and erratic boss Siegfried Farnon, his wayward brother Tristan and the shrewd Mrs Hall, who is endlessly steering the ship.

When local beauty Helen Alderson attracts James's attention, he finds another reason to stay in the Dales.

Season 4 opens around Easter of 1940 amidst the uncertainties of war.

With James unsure whether or not he'll be called up for the RAF, he and Helen are wondering when might be the right time to start a new family, and with Tristan serving in the Royal Army Veterinary Corps, Siegfried is at loose ends... in more ways than one.

A new veterinary assistant, Richard Carmody, joins the household to provide much-needed help, and his acclimation goes, well, exactly how you'd imagine, and Siegfried hires an experienced bookkeeper, Miss Harbottle, to impose some method to the madness.

It's no wonder Helen and Mrs. Hall's friendship deepens.

With the drama, shenanigans, and unmitigated warmth of Tristan missing from Skeldale house, everyone is trying to find their place in the growing and changing household.

Will James and Helen start their family? Will Mrs. Hall and Gerald's relationship blossom? Will Siegfried manage the practice—and his emotions—with Tristan at war?

And will Mrs. Pumphrey ever stop spoiling Tricki?

Expect to see our beloved characters exploring these challenges and more, all the while caring for all manner of animals, as Season 4 unfolds.

Ezomshado 2

Uthando Nes'thembu stars Busisiwe 'MaCele' Mseleku and Thobile 'MaKhumalo' Mseleku host this intervention show aimed at giving marriages a fighting chance.

As coveted as the wedding ring might be for many couples (and singles), marriage isn't an easy journey.

As the stars of Uthando Nes'thembu (and Real Housewives of Durban), MaCele and Thobile have been navigating a polygamous marriage for several years.

This made them an obvious choice for a show which stages interventions for married or engaged couples facing challenges on what is an important journey in their lives.

The mission is to help build successful and intimate relationships, one couple at a time.

The show discusses topics on all matters of the heart with the Mseleku wives.

But it isn't just be he-said, she-said: where needed, other sources share insight into a couple's situation, before the relevant experts weigh in with guidance meant to empower partners and strengthen their relationships.

This season highlights the show's main mission – to mend and rebuild marital relationships, and to dig deeper into the emotional bond that binds couples together, providing:

A safe haven: In this season, a retreat offers a serene environment for couples to engage honestly and confront the root of their problems.

Guidance from the pros: A team of experts, skilled at solving different relationship challenges, will offer insights and support.

Innovative healing techniques: Through specially selected activities, couples will learn to resolve conflict, communicate effectively, and rekindle their bond with passion.

Each episode is a blend of personal storytelling, intervention and healing activities created to find the roots of conflict and build understanding and forgiveness.

Couples will not only confront their past, but will be provided with tools for a healthier, happier future.
