The Queen of Crypto: Visionary, Victim or Villain?

In an age rich in fakes, phonies and fraudsters, only one scammer has the dubious honour of making both the FBI and Interpol's 2022 Most Wanted Lists.

After exploiting the cryptocurrency boom for a fortune in what The Times called "one of the biggest scams in history", she disappeared without a trace - along with billions of dollars.

The question now is: where is Ruja Ignatova?

Writer and director team Rudolph Herzog and Raid Sabbah gain exclusive access to whistleblowers, her victims, high-level experts, and more as they search across the globe, uncovering shocking revelations, real-time insights, and explosive leaked documents.

As the case becomes more and more complex, Ruja's secrets unravel.

The series reveals a woman who - even now - some still believe to be a visionary with messiah-like status; some that she is the victim of greater, more shadowy criminal powers, and some that she is, without doubt, the ruthless villain behind the ultimate crypto heist of all time.

Criminal Minds: Evolution 2

It takes a killer to catch a killer.

This season of Criminal Minds: Evolution (aka Criminal Minds 17) picks up as the FBI's elite team of profilers investigates the deadly mystery of Gold Star.

The team faces its biggest threat yet and cannot emerge unscathed from the mind-bending consequences.

Yes, to the Impossible: The Nolo Letele Story

A documentary about the life of former MultiChoice Group Executive Chairperson Nolo Letele.

The documentary shows how growing up in an era where the spirit of independence was sweeping across Africa shaped Letele's vision for the continent to have its own voice – and how he worked tirelessly to realise that vision.

To speak of the growth of the African broadcast media industry is to speak of the result of Nolo's endeavours, passion for African storytelling and relentless commitment to excellence.

After studying electronic engineering at the University of Southampton, and later becoming a chartered engineer, Nolo applied for jobs in South Africa - only to find there were hardly any jobs for a black electronics graduate back in 1974.

He ended up working for Lesotho National Broadcasting Service, a small radio station and subsequently played a major role in starting the first TV station in Lesotho in 1988.

Having established his credentials, he was then asked to join M-Net in 1990 by then-Naspers CEO Koos Bekker to help build DStv into a global brand.

In spite of South Africa's image during those Apartheid years, Letele succeeded in pioneering MultiChoice's expansion into the rest of Africa, and in 1995 went on to serve in Ghana as West African regional general manager.

He returned home when he was appointed chief executive of MultiChoice South Africa a few years later.
