Time Bomb: The Incredible Story of Phillip Ndou

A sports documentary journey through time, tracing the life and career of one of South Africa's greatest boxing talents, Phillip Ndou.

From the very beginning, Phillip's life was set to be extraordinary.

Born on the side of a road, this set the pace for a life where the odds were constantly stacked against him.

His fight to the top of the boxing world, and notably his bout against the legendary Floyd Mayweather, is just part of the intricate fabric of his life.

The episodes delve deep, not just into the high adrenaline world of boxing, but more into Phillip's personal battles, dreams, regrets and his mission to inspire the next generation of sports enthusiasts in Africa.

This is not just the story of a sportsman. It's the journey of a son, a father, a partner, and above all, a champion.

Time Bomb: The Incredible Story of Phillip Ndou paints an intimate portrait of his life's highs and lows.

Three Days to Live

It's a story that dominates the headlines all too often - every hour a woman is taken, and the chances of finding her alive diminish greatly if she is not found within 72 hours of her disappearance.

Three Days to Live delves into the crucial days immediately following a harrowing abduction with vivid, visceral recreations and compelling first-hand interviews from authorities and loved ones.

News correspondent SuChin Pak narrates the series, taking you through the twists and turns of each tormenting case.

From a young girl who is taken by a group of masked men, and held at ransom after answering a knock at the door, to a suburban South Carolina wife and mother who never returned home after a holiday shopping spree, each mystery is unraveled, and viewers will witness justice being served, no matter the outcome.

In the series premiere, "Teri Jendusa Nicolai": 911 dispatch receives an alarming call from a missing woman trapped in the trunk of a car; her life, and those of her two young daughters are in danger.

Investigators work around the clock to locate them before time runs out.
