7de Laan is a long running multi-cultural soap and is the brainchild of Danie Odendaal,
who came upon the idea for this popular soapie nearly fifteen years ago when he was
living in Melville. Every morning over coffee and breakfast in his favourite coffee shop,
he watched people come and go and started creating his own imaginary suburb with a
variety of characters: a stingy businessman who loves to gossip, the manager of his
coffee shop who is a beloved mother figure, the cute and lively waitresses, an eccentric
old man who talks in riddles, and of course a superbitch or two for good measure.

Even though the series is primarily in Afrikaans, it has a following across the cultural and
colour spectrum and English subtitles make it accessible to a very wide audience.

In season 2 we will see Jacob turn from passive to active – he will take control of his life,
his family and his inheritance. We’ll see him grow up quickly, becoming a man. The near
loss of Joe is his catalyst.

Jacob’s quest is to really take up his seat at the head of his Empire. (In the broad sense
to become a real leader. In a macro sense to live up to his father’s wish to hold the
family together and become the chief.)

What he really wants is to sit at the head of a large and united circle of family, friends
and businesses. In order to get this, he has to gamble the Abayomi crown jewel - oil. Will
his gamble pay off?

his team of federal law enforcement professionals dedicated to protecting the people,
families, and assets of the U.S. Navy and the Marine Corps worldwide.

NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) is more than just an action drama. With
liberal doses of humor, it’s a show that focuses on the sometimes complex and always
amusing dynamics of a team forced to work together in high-stress situations. Leading
this troupe of colorful personalities is NCIS Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs, a former
Marine gunnery sergeant, whose skills as an investigator are unmatched. Gibbs is a
man of few words, who only needs a look to explain it all. Working under Gibbs is
Special Agent Anthony Dinozzo, an ex-homicide detective who may come off as the
world’s oldest frat boy, but whose instincts in the field are unparalleled. Joining them are
forensic specialist Abby Sciuto, a talented scientist whose dark wit matches her Goth
style and eclectic tastes, and NCIS Special Agent Timothy McGee, an MIT graduate
whose brilliance with computers far overshadows his insecurities in the field. Assisting
the team is medical examiner Dr. Donald “Ducky” Mallard, who knows it all because he’s
seen it all, and he’s not afraid to let you know. Internally, the NCIS team will have to
band together and recover after the devastating loss of Special Agent Kate Todd at the
hands of a terrorist. From murder and espionage to terrorism and stolen submarines,
these special agents travel the globe to investigate all crimes with Navy and Marine
Corps ties.

The ever-popular NOOT VIR NOOT has reached a new milestone. The 33rd season of
this indigenous Afrikaans musical game show starts on 16 October 2009 at 19h30.on
SABC 2 NOOT VIR NOOT already exceeded the records for popularity, viewership and
the longest running program on SA television.

Devised, directed and produced by Johan Stemmet, Johan van Rensburg and Elsa
Colling of Stemmburg Television in 1991, NOOT VIR NOOT enjoyed an uninterrupted bi-
annual broadcast since its first series. Over the years the program has broadened its
horizons to include multi-cultural music, contestants and artists and it prides itself with its
broad representative viewership. Continued changes to the games and the format keep
NOOT VIR NOOT dynamic and interesting.
Three new games have been developed and are included in series 33 which will
challenge musical knowledge in different and exciting ways. The winner of the series
will not only accumulate his/her prize money, which has been increased substantially for
the series, but will also receive a R50 000 investment account in his / her name. The
monetary value of the jackpot round has been increased from R30,000 to R50,000.

As with series 32, this series will also be in the 22-program format, which will conclude,
as usual, with a celebrity program.

Looking at the list of guest artists it is evident that Noot vir Noot is once again catering
for a wide spectrum of singers which include a special Christmas medley by the
Musiekfabriek and the presenter, Johan Stemmet.

Townsville from massive lizards, colossal three-eyed fish, an evil genius monkey named
Mojo Jojo, a country bumpkin and other outlandish creatures and resident villains.

The ordinary person in the street often feels abused by retailers and service providers
and isn’t quite sure how to address that situation or get a real, satisfying solution. With
2010 just around the corner the service industry in South Africa needs a profound wake
up call. The ordinary person needs a champion, not just for his or her rights but also for
redress and education. SPEAK OUT aims to be that champion and the wake up call.

 With strong investigative research behind them the team will expose bad service and
show consumers how to handle such situations themselves. So often people just lose
their temper and then nothing is achieved besides a migraine.

 As if that wasn’t enough, the service provider then adopts bad attitudes and even worse
service. A customer complaint should force service providers to better service. Using a
unique format, witty and intelligent delivery, SPEAK OUT will either go undercover or
approach the retailer directly in order to get the most satisfying solution for the aggrieved
consumer.
Using a unique style for the current affairs genre SPEAK OUT aims to create a better
and friendlier South Africa.

The show’s emphasis on fresh ingredients and healthy eating led to the successful
partnership with sponsor Pick n Pay and endorsement from various quarters including
government departments and the SA Nutrition Experts Panel which focuses on healthier
eating habits.

Ultimately, however, WHIP the CHEF has been about reintroducing the magic of good
food, simple food the way in which it was meant to be enjoyed: wholesome, fresh and in
celebration of the joy of life that all children should experience.

The trouble with being a kid is that there seems to be a lot more things that you cant do
than things you can do! Sometimes you just need that extra boost of confidence to push
you long. Will, an everyday kid who wants to do it all, is able to jump into new situations
with a little help from his best friend, cheerleader and morphing pal, Dewitt (who just
happens to be a frog!).

Investigating the aftermath of a murder means getting into the mind of the perpetrator.
But when the victim unaccountably disappears, the job becomes much more
challenging. It requires deconstructing the persona of the missing and reconstructing the
                                                                 s
unique, crucial components of their last known moments. That' where the work of the
brilliant, New York-based FBI Missing Persons Squad begins.

From powerhouse executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer ("CSI: Crime Scene
Investigation") and Emmy Award-nominated writer Hank Steinberg ("61*"), Without a
Trace provides a fascinating glimpse into a rarely seen arena: the search for people who
vanish inexplicably. For authoritative agent Jack Malone (Anthony LaPaglia) and his
driven colleagues, finding the missing depends as much on figuring out who they are as
it does on determining where they are.

Women in Sport celebrates the role of women across all sporting codes. The programme
is fast paced and informative, providing a home for sportswomen in South Africa

The programme covers all aspects of our sporting world from administration through to
players on the pitch. High achievers will be profiled and the news segments will highlight
the achievements of South Africans around the world.

The programme, which is targeted at LSM’s 5-8 in the age group 16 - 35, will also lean
towards development, with two segments dedicated to this area every month. But
education will also be indirect where features such as Fun and Games will explain, for
example, the kit needed to play hockey.

The female sports fan has been largely overlooked and Women in Sport will address
this issue.

You don’t know me is a series of documentaries that challenge clichés and
assumptions that South Africans have about one another. Filmmakers present a
character and reveal the unexpected around the personality that we have typically
stereotyped.

The series features a range of personalities, ordinary South Africans doing extraordinary
things.
The films are textured, moving and entertaining human stories that are character-driven
and go deeper, to delve into the complexity of old and new cultural /racial identities in
contemporary South Africa - and the values they embody.

What is vital is that we learn to understand the characters and reassess our own rigid
beliefs after watching the films.
