The Program: Cons, Cults and Kidnapping

Years after being sent to a disciplinary school, a woman still haunted by her experiences exposes the corruption and abuse of the troubled teen industry.

No talking. No smiling. No going outside.

Instead, teens suffered mental and physical abuse in a program that operated like a cult.

In this investigative docuseries, a filmmaker and other former students recall their horrific experiences attending a disciplinary school and expose the horrors of the industry.

In die Sop 3: Restaurant-Evolusie

Bertus Basson shares his pantry of knowledge again in a new season of his restaurant reality makeover show.

In die Sop: Restaurant-Evolusie visits various restaurants from the Cape to the Karoo and the West Coast – and for the first time also Gauteng – which will get a much-needed makeover.

More than 400 restaurants entered for Season 3 and Bertus, décor specialist Misi Overturf and their team of experts had a very tough time picking the participants.

As was the case with the previous seasons, their biggest challenge is the battle against time.

They have a mere 72 hours to completely revamp and reboot a restaurant.

And that requires way more than just a broom, a lick of paint and some spit and polish.

The third season kicks off in one of Cape Town's northern suburbs, Kuils River, where the residents all know Suzie and Willy Mathys and their humble 1960s home behind a vibracrete wall cheerfully painted purple.

For this energetic 70-something couple who owns Suzie's Coffee Shop it has been like a dream come true to take part in In die Sop and to share their story with South Africa.

Organisation, systems and good self-discipline are the biggest challenges owners of restaurants need help with.

If they can master these three aspects, the right foundation for growth and good management has been laid.

In die Sop will also feature a charity project for the first time.

In one of the episodes, the team will apply their unique set of skills to help the Durbanville Children's Home convert their current kitchens into functional and more homely spaces.

In the Womb: Animal Babies

A previsioning of the classic National Geographic series.

Using groundbreaking photography, state-of-the-art special effects and amazing 4D scans, In the Womb takes us on a series of remarkable journeys into the extraordinary world of fetal development.

From the bizarre to the breathtaking, four unique journeys that unlock the secrets of fetal development and reveal life in the womb - as it's never been seen before.

A Wild Start

Cutting-edge imagery provides an inside look at the pregnancies of four animal moms – lion Maya, meerkat Swift, herding dog Brumby and elephant Bisa as they embark on one of life's most incredible journeys.

Facing everything from snakes to cattle hooves, hunger to raging rivers, these moms triumph over challenges big and small on their way to bringing their babies safely into the world.


The four animal moms reach the most challenging moment of their pregnancies – birth.

Brumby has a human midwife on hand to help deliver her pups, but Maya is alone as she protects her newborn cubs from hyenas.

Swift's sisters and daughters help usher her kits into the world.

And while Bisa is surrounded by family as well, she faces 48 hours of extreme labour before she can welcome her calf into the herd.

This season brings even more drama, with an unexpected proposed agreement between the PGA Tour, the DP World Tour and the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia, backers of LIV Golf, as well as the Ryder Cup, a biennial event, putting golf on the world stage with a team competition consisting of the best players from the US and Europe.

Body Cam 5

In the field of policing on the front line, an instant decision can be a matter of life or death.

This series steps into the officers' shoes as body camera footage, along with first-hand accounts, reveals the shocking reality of life on the streets for law enforcement officers.

Each episode tells multiple stories of those who vowed to protect and serve in unflinching detail, offering their own personal perspective of officers in life-threatening circumstances.

With backstories delivering an intense emotional punch, the series profiles how quickly seemingly routine situations can escalate into tragic altercations.

For these law enforcement officers, life on patrol can be anything but routine.

In the Season 5 premiere: A home invasion goes wrong in North Carolina as a fleeing burglar takes a pregnant woman as a human shield.

Meanwhile, officers in Ohio meet a hail of bullets during a high-speed chase.

Also, an officer faces a knife-wielding teenage girl in California.

Extraordinary 2

Channel: Disney+
TX Time: 00h01
Genre: Superhero, Comedy

Extraordinary 2

Meet Jen. She lives in a world where everyone has a superpower. Everyone except her.

Extraordinary is somewhere between a sitcom and an existential crisis: an eye-popping, shocking, hilarious and bittersweet comedy about finding your way in the world, when all you'll ever be is 'ordinary'.

Season 2 picks up where Season 1 spectacularly left off, following Jen on her journey as she enrolls as a client at the power clinic.

Jen soon discovers that the process of finding her power isn't as easy as she hoped, and things in the rest of her life aren't smooth sailing either.

Ex-cat, now-boyfriend Jizzlord has had an unexpected revelation about his past, and Kash and Carrie are attempting to be totally mature and dignified about their break-up, which is not easy when they're still living under the same roof.

It seems that Jen and the gang are dealing with new levels of adulting and chaos that none of them are prepared for.
