Wow! It feels like I’m living in a weird science experiment with Corona lurking like a blood-thirsty zombie outside the door. I’m writing this at 03:00 in the morning in a lockdown state. Since tvplus is also published digitally, our team is still hard at work even though it’s a different kind of experiment putting a magazine together from our homes. I still constantly want to look over my shoulder to see if I can spot the cameraman. Surely this must be a recording for a reality show rather than real life? No doubt we’ll soon start seeing movies and programmes with a COVID-19 theme. There is actually already a good documentary about epidemics on Netflix. And now is definitely the time to catch up on TV. If you’re bored…

bound by blood

In History Channel’s (*186) remarkable new Freedom Month doccie Your People, My People, four total strangers each take a DNA test and a journey of discovery begins. With test results in hand, hosts Pat Pillai (entrepreneur and former eNews anchor) and Les Aupiais (media mogul and editor of Icon magazine) will take the four into their past, their ancestors’ pasts and the tales that their blood tells. Along the way they’ll participate in re-enactments of historical events that impacted their relatives, like the 1838 Battle Of Blood River, or experience life as an indentured labourer. And their journey will take them beyond the borders of South Africa. For one of the four strangers, East Coast Radio DJ Minnie Ntuli (an Idols SA top-16 contestant in season 13 in 2017), the experience…
