Bolhuis Beslis

What starts as a minor altercation can easily grow into a full-scale fight and this series is all about addressing these thorny issues.

In the arbiter's chair is private investigator Mike Bolhuis, who will listen to both sides of the story and then decide who is right and who is wrong.

In one of the first episodes in the series we meet Alta, who asked a caterer to bake a cake for her son's 21st birthday.

However, the caterer misunderstood the request, and what was supposed to be a so-called naked cake – a cake with minimal icing – turned into a cake in the shape of a naked woman.

Then there is Yaella from Heidelberg, who lashed out on social media against Heidi, the administrator of the Facebook group the Heidelberg Geselsgroepie, after Heidi removed an inappropriate post by Yaella from the group.

An ugly argument ensued between the two, causing quite a stir in the town.

In another episode we meet Eben, whose hobby is pigeon racing. His wife, Amber, however, feels it has become an obsession.

According to her, Eben pays too little attention to his family and too much to his pigeons.

She also believes that too much money is spent on the birds and that Eben struggles to maintain a life-pigeon balance.

Amber was at her wit's end and decided to approach Mike to give her husband an ultimatum.

Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries 3

In 1964, the gorgeously reckless Peregrine Fisher is rocketed from a lonely, dissatisfying small-town life into a career as a fearless investigator, supported by a coterie of remarkable women who help her follow in the footsteps of her famous Aunt Phryne.

Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries is based on the novels of Australian author Kerry Greenwood.

The lady sleuth sashays through the back lanes and jazz clubs of late 1920s Melbourne, fighting injustice with her pearl handled pistol and her dagger sharp wit.

Leaving a trail of admirers in her wake, the thoroughly modern heroine makes sure she enjoys every moment of her lucky life.

This lush take on the traditional crime drama explores the fascinating and varied sub cultures of 1920s 'between-the-wars' Melbourne.

From the shadowy lanes of the city to the halls of academia, from high-class brothels to haute couture, she defends the innocent and juggles admirers with her usual panache, all the while keeping up her delicious dance around Detective Inspector Jack Robinson.

In the Season 3 premiere, "Death Defying Feats": A sabotaged guillotine leaves a magician's assistant dead onstage and the magician confessing to murder — not of his assistant, but of his wife 10 years earlier.

Phryne enters a world of deception and illusion and decides that to solve the crime, she needs to get in on the act.

Deadliest Catch 20

Deadliest Catch 20

It's the deadliest job on Earth: crab fishing off the Alaska coast on the icy Bering Sea, home of the most violent waters on Earth.

During the five-day season, a handful of adventurers risk their lives as they battle Arctic weather, brutal waves, and a ticking clock for a chance at big money in this modern-day gold rush.

To kick-off this milestone 20th season, the lucrative Red King Crab fishery has finally reopened in Alaska, igniting the first derby-style race in decades.

Forced to obtain their crab hauls in a highly competitive timeframe, veteran and rookie captains are thrust into cutthroat rivalries that will push each crabber to their limit.

Meanwhile, the crab grounds become more perilous than ever as a rare super El Niño weather pattern intensifies winter storms, serving as a grim reminder to why Alaska crab fishing is known as the Deadliest Catch.

The captains will face the biggest challenges of their storied careers as:

Captain Jake Anderson loses the F/V Saga, the boat he captained for a decade and held an ownership stake in.

Now, he must swallow his pride and return to his mentor Captain Sig Hansen on the F/V Northwestern, the vessel Jake began his career on as a greenhorn 18 years ago, until he can earn a captain's seat on a new boat.

After leading his crew to fight a fire on the F/V Wizard that nearly costs the life of a deckhand, Captain Keith Colburn faces a life-threatening emergency at sea 750 miles from the nearest hospital.

After receiving a medical bombshell at the end of last season, Captain Wild Bill Wichrowski is forced to fight for both his life and legacy on the F/V Summer Bay.

Lured out of retirement by the reopening of Red King Crab, Captain Johnathan Hillstrand returns to the F/V Time Bandit to capture his million-dollar quota.

Captains Steve Harley Davidson and Jack Bunnell risk their reputations and financial future to upgrade to the 126-foot F/V Pacific Mariner in hopes of catching more quota and more crab.

Sophia "Bob" Nielsen, the youngest captain in the fleet, takes the helm of the massive 113-foot F/V Seabrooke, honouring her late father Gary and testing her mettle against the most violent seas on Earth.

Hungry to secure his future as a skipper, Jacob Hutchins makes a play for the relief captain spot on Captain Rick Shelford's F/V Aleutian Lady.

Unexpected 6

It's hard enough being a teenager, and even more so when you're pregnant.

This series takes an unflinching look at the highs and lows of three unplanned teenage pregnancies and the impact these new additions have on their families.

Adding to the already complex family relationships, each one of these young mothers was herself the child of a teen mum.

This season features three new couples and two returning that each have unique experiences and obstacles as young, expecting parents.

This season, we meet an aspirational motocross rider who must give up his dream of becoming a professional rider now that his girlfriend's expecting.

We are also introduced to a former cheerleading queen who dislikes the "long-distance" relationship she has with her boyfriend from a neighbouring town 30-minutes away because they both cannot drive and as a result, they barely see each other.

One returning teen mom from last season struggles to create a new life for herself while leaving her past behind, and another returning mom is determined to save up for the next step of her relationship with her fiancé.

All the couples grapple with difficult relationships between their families, all the while navigating their individual challenges that come with early parenthood.

The following five couples are featured in the upcoming season:

Emalee (18) and Nate (16)

Emalee is the older "cougar" teen mom who dates Nate - the younger, shy boy who dreams of a career as a professional motocross rider.

The couple not only navigates the challenges of teen pregnancy, but the expectations and pressures from both sides of their families.

Kayleigh (15) and Graham (15)

Former cheer queen Kayleigh meets Graham, and as they become romantically involved, Kayleigh gets pregnant.

The couple realises long distance is hard to accomplish as neither can drive to see each other, adding another layer to what already seems like a complicated situation.

Aniyah (17) and Dakwon (17)

Aniyah is the overachieving teen diva dating Dakwon, the star athlete who is overwhelmed by the shocking turn their lives have taken.

Aniyah goes through difficulties in her pregnancy while growing increasingly worried that Dakwon will leave after their baby is born.

Returning - Jenna (19) and JJ (20)

Jenna is now a super mom to 3-year-old Luca and has finally recovered from her breakup with Luca's father.

She is now thriving since moving out on her own and has a new boyfriend named JJ.

Along with her wild-card friend, Delanie, the three enjoy a life of independence until Jenna is hit with a devastating surprise from her past.

Returning - Lilly (22) and Lawrence (21)

Lilly and Lawrence are in the throes of hard times for a young family.

They have their hands full parenting 4-year-old Aliyah and 16-month-old LJ and at the same time, Lawrence and Lilly are trying to plan for a wedding they have neither the time nor the money to have.

In the Season 6 premiere, "We're the Kids in America": Parents-to-be Emalee and Nate attend school and Nate's motocross tournament together.

Also, Jenna and son Luca return to Pennsylvania from a summer spent in Myrtle Beach.

Meanwhile, expecting 15-year old Kayleigh facetimes her boyfriend Graham and serves her family during a shift at work.

Inside Beverly Hills: The Land of the Rich and Famous

A gloriously escapist exploration of one of the world's most glamorous and iconic places.

Peek inside Beverly Hills' opulent homes, hotels and businesses to see how the other half work, rest and play.

Beverly Hills may be a small suburb of Los Angeles, but it's a city in its own right.

With just 35,000 inhabitants it has arguably the most exclusive postcode in the world – 90210.

This is the billionaire's playground that Hollywood calls home.

Exploring a society defined by money, luxury lifestyle and celebrity status, this series meets the entrepreneurs, estate agents, stylists and designers catering to every whim of the Hollywood stars, social media super-influencers, aristocrats and millionaires who have made their fortunes in Beverly Hills.

We follow an estate agent as she works to sell opulent manors to the super-rich, a British aristocrat planning to launch a swimwear brand, and a celebrity stylist whose prices are only for the wealthy to consider.
