All the dolls have different journeys, some come from disadvantaged backgrounds, but all have come to the City of Gold hoping to better their lives. Life gets real in Joburg, life became tougher, as they were exposed to wealthy, big spenders and the nightclub life. They were beautiful women used by club owners as bait to lure in patrons and thereby introduced them into becoming club hostesses, here is where they are exposed to big spenders and sexual advances. This has led to some of them dropping out of school and opting to becoming event hostesses to maintain their glamorous lifestyles. Most slay queens hardly post about their families on social media, but they always show off the glitz and glam. We all know that social media, especially Instagram, can sometimes be misleading and sell us false dreams as spectators, so in this show we go deeper into their personal and family lives.

Click for synopsis

A South African sitcom that takes place in and about the offices of the fictitious, and once powerful, TVA (Trade Vetting Agency). Officially they are a vetting agency that has to regulate and oversee state tenders. They are also suppose to police the adherence to tender specifications, but as in all things political, the lines are often blurred. Mostly beyond recognition. The Agency is very much a leftover from the previous dispensation, when everything was over controlled and regulated into obliviousness. Previously mocked as the “Red Tape Brigade”, they still bear the brunt of many an office ridicule. Once situated on the powerful eleventh floor, with sun lit offices and views to spare. Now, however, they have been allocated lock, stock and barrel to the basement. Floor minus three to be exact, with artificial lighting and non-existent views. To add injury to insult, nobody in the rest of the building actually gives a rat what goes on at TVA. Nobody visits. Nobody phones. They still try and maintain their test facility. A semblance of what it used to be, it’s now a cross between a workshop and home made lab. The two technicians who man the facility are totally undercompetent, under-paid and under staffed. In others words, bugger all gets done. Ever. Their core function, for example, the testing of toilet seats, imported from China, to be used in all Governmental institutions all over Gauteng province, have been “in progress” since they moved down from the 11th floor. (According to G. M. Hodgson, it is misleading to say that an institution is a form of behaviour). Quit a few of the government employees waiting on the promised and now long 2 overdue toilet seats will strongly disagree with Hodgson. Come to think off it. Nobody at TVA is actually competent in what they do. That’s the main reason why they were transferred there in the first place. From the main man right down to the messenger. Totally inefficient and incompetent. Comical situations arise when the department is given a or any task to perform. It’s starts of by being classified “Highly confidential”, and then slide down the social media highway of dis-information, until it becomes “Highly dis-functional”. Meetings are religiously called and stringent procedures applied. That’s about it. After the meeting is adjourned, nothing still gets done. This is slowly but surely driving “the chair” to drink. Furthermore, every one of the characters carries a mountain load of personal problems and hang-ups which they all dutifully bring to the office or their respective work environments to share with whoever cares to listen, or happens to be there. Office gossip is rife. Nothing is sacred. On top of this, the sexual tension that Precious creates, by just being at work, drives the men at TVA nuts. Mr. Reddy clings to the past. The good old days, when he was still a somebody. Thabo and Leeroy, the tech due, can’t give a hoot. Genius Ntuli, the office messenger has his head up his butt. Precious wants to be famous. Thabo’s wife, Thandeka trusts no one, least of all her good for nothing (but loving) husband. Madam chairwoman, CEO of TVA, and socialite par excellance, Ms. Miriam Mbete runs the zoo. With a hand of steel and sky high stilettos. They all fear her to dread because she can hire or fire anybody with a snap of her finger. The little one.

“We live in an age of technology and science that demands PROOF, and yet we desire mystery” – Mother Angelica

This show centres around dramatic clips offered as evidence of the supernatural, and then presents the opinions of prominent skeptics and believers, such as Skeeter McGee, Michael Shermer, Shauna Grace, Robert Scheaffer and many more, in a debate style argument-counter-argument format.

The range of subjects covered include: ESP, Miracles, The Dark Web, the mysterious Denver Airport Conspiracy, Shadow People, Cryptids, Secret Societies, Mind Control, the ghostly whispers in the static of Electronic Voice Phenomenon, the scary reality of Demonic Attacks, do governments conduct Weather Control, and whether Alien Abductions happen.

In our lead-up to the skeptic-believer debate, an English voice-over artist guides us on a journey speculating about the content of some of the rarest and most compelling, often shocking, clips, often coupled with eyewitness testimony.

Ultimately, the viewer is prompted to decide if what they’ve seen is Proof of the paranormal, or whether they still need more evidence.

Click for synopsis

You have seen them in the ring as some of the world’s best meanest fight champions, but who are these men in real life, and what brought them to fight on the world MMA and Kickboxing stages? This new and exciting, beautifully-shot and well-constructed sports documentary series features the newest and most legendary stars in the fighting world as you have never seen them before.

Each of the first 12 episodes focus on one champion fighter. We get to know them and the incredible locations they call home, across Europe, and the USA. Each episode lifts the lid on these highly-motivated warriors, and reflects their surprising past, and captures their tenderness and humanity, through a slice-of-life window into their relationships, family and friends. We meet the coaches, who sculpt these fighting machines, and explore the fighters’ beliefs and values, as well as the secrets to their success, providing the viewer with a glimpse into their sometimes very emotional backgrounds.

Part travel, part personal journey, and part glory – chronicling the best and worst moments of their careers, this rare and intimate series packs more than punches, opening it up to a much broader than the usual “fight fan” audience.

The final episode is then totally unique, in that it looks at the fights between each of these world champions, pits their egos and respects for one other against the backdrop of a blow-by-blow commentary to the fight footage.

These legends of the fighting world, are as much hero’s in their homes as they are in the ring!

Shkodran Veseli – Kickboxing Welterweight FFC Champion

‘The Healer’ follows a man with an unwanted gift for healing. When he meets a teenager with terminal cancer, she unexpectedly helps him to find himself.

Alec’s (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) life in England is falling apart. ‘The Healer’, his electrical repair store, is going out of business. He owes money to the wrong people, he’s sleeping with married women, and he’ s drinking like there’s no tomorrow.

Without warning, a man named Raymond (Jonathan Pryce) shows up, claiming to be his uncle. Raymond has a proposition that could provide Alec with a clean slate: he will pay all his debts in exchange for Alec moving to Nova Scotia for one year.

Alec arrives in Lunenburg, the small rural town where Raymond owns a house. To help him make a living, Cecilia (Camilla Luddington), the local veterinarian he befriends, places an ad for him in the weekly newspaper offering his services as an electrical repairman.
In his attempt to attract business from the locals, his ad reads ‘The Healer, I fix anything electrical that is broken.’ But the ad is misprinted, and it reads as though Alec is claiming to be an actual mystical healer of people.

The townspeople flock to hire his services – but Alec rebuffs them, explaining the misprint. What’s extraordinary and unexplainable, however, is that those that do go and see Alec are cured of their ailments. The rumour spreads: he becomes known as a healer.

As much as Alec yearns to avoid being attributed any healing powers, more bizarre events keep occurring. Dogs seem absolutely fascinated with him; the local priest Father Malloy (Jorge Garcia), suffers a heart attack, dies, and then comes back to life; and a deaf old man tells his wife to stop screaming at him. Alec, in shock, discovers the family secret – he possesses the gift of healing. Alec must now make a conscious choice: to accept or reject the gift.

The arrival of Abigail (Kaitlyn Bernard), a teenage girl with terminal cancer, wise beyond her years, provides Alec with one last chance to consider his life’s purpose.

It’s a cheerful, heart-warming drama-comedy film for the whole family with a positive and hopeful message.

A year after the death of the artist, Vincent van Gogh, Postman Roulin gets his slacker son, Armand, to hand deliver the artist’s final letter written to his now late brother, Theo, to some worthy recipient after multiple failed postal delivery attempts. Although disdainful of this seemingly pointless chore, Armand travels to Auvers-sur-Oise where a purported close companion to Vincent, Dr. Gachet, lives. Having to wait until the doctor returns from business, Armand meets many of the people of that village who not only knew Vincent, but were apparently also models and inspirations for his art. In doing so, Armond becomes increasingly fascinated in the psyche and fate of Van Gogh as numerous suspicious details fail to add up. However, as Armond digs further, he comes to realize that Vincent’s troubled life is as much a matter of interpretation as his paintings and there are no easy answers for a man whose work and tragedy would only be truly appreciated in the future.
