A Big Day For 25k

A Big Day for 25k helps soon-to-be newlyweds celebrate their wedding in style and within budget.

The show follows 13 couples who plan and create their dream weddings on a fixed budget of R25,000.

In South Africa, weddings are some of our biggest celebrations.

In some cultures, there is more than one wedding ceremony where couples and families can host a traditional ceremony and a civil wedding.

Couples save a lump sum of money or get into debt to unite in marriage.

The cost of getting married is sky-high. Unfortunately, the bride and groom often fall into debt while planning for this elaborate day, the worst way to start a marriage.

In this reality series we follow couples on their journey as they have to plan and create their dream weddings on a smaller budget of R25,000 over four days leading up to their big day.

The couples rely on their friends, families and skills rather than placing reliance on money.

There will be tears and laughter, frustrations, and wisdom as we journey with them to their big day for 25k.

In the series premiere: Monique Warren-Du Plessis and Manie Plessis from Pretoria have had a challenging life and when Manie came and saved Monique from a rather dark relationship, the writing was on the wall.

With the support of Manie's landlords, the couple where able to give the children a brighter future and all that remains is a cozy fairytale wedding fit for a deserving couple.

Will the dream team make the dream work for just 25k?

Frozen Planet

Frozen Planet

Frozen Planet will provide the ultimate portrait of Earth's polar regions, where the scale and beauty of the scenery and sheer power of the natural elements are unlike anywhere else on the planet.

Ambitious and epic in scale, Frozen Planet reveals an astonishing world filled with more creatures, variety, colour and spectacle than ever imagined.

This includes the birth of an iceberg bigger than the largest building on Earth, a caterpillar with antifreeze in its veins, the greatest concentration of sea birds on the planet, and tiny baby polar bears, who at birth are 25% smaller than human babies.

Never-before-filmed sequences include the growth of a saltwater icicle (brinicle) that freezes everything it touches and orca whales working as a team to create killer waves that wash seals off ice floes.

To capture nature's majestic power - as well as its ultimate fragility - Frozen Planet's filmmakers utilised the latest cinematographic techniques and technology to capture groundbreaking imagery both above and below the ice in some of the most extreme and remote regions of our planet.

In the series premiere, "To the Ends of the Earth": David Attenborough travels to the end of the Earth, taking viewers on an extraordinary journey across the polar regions of our planet, North and South.

The Arctic and Antarctic are the greatest and least-known wildernesses of all - magical ice worlds inhabited by the most bizarre and hardy creatures on Earth.

Our journey begins with David at the North Pole, as the sun returns after six months of darkness.

We follow a pair of courting polar bears, which reveal a surprisingly tender side.

Next stop is the giant Greenland ice cap, where waterfalls plunge into the heart of the ice and a colossal iceberg carves into the sea.

Humpback whales join the largest gathering of seabirds on Earth to feast in rich Alaskan waters.

Further south, the tree line marks the start of the taiga forest, containing one third of all trees on Earth.

Here, 25 of the world's largest wolves take on formidable bison prey.

At the other end of our planet, the Antarctic begins in the Southern Ocean, where surfing penguins struggle to escape a hungry sea lion and teams of orcas create giant waves to wash seals from ice floes - a filming first.

Diving below the ice, we discover prehistoric giants, including terrifying sea spiders and woodlice the size of dinner plates.

Above ground, crystal caverns ring the summit of Erebus, the most southerly volcano on Earth.

From here, we retrace the routes of early explorers across the formidable Antarctic ice cap - the largest expanse of ice on our planet.

Finally, we rejoin David at the South Pole, exactly one hundred years after Amundsen, and then Scott, were the first humans to stand there.
