New year, new local shows to love on DStv.

A brand new season of the popular reality show Boer Soek ‘n Vrou goes throughout the country to meet farmers and find out what they are looking for in a partner.

Abandoned looks at the impact of being deserted as an infant. Lwazi is a 22 year old girl who was abandoned by her birth mother at just 6 months old. Today, she tells her story of being one of the 1000 children in 2016 and how the Marylebone Project for Orphaned and Abandoned Children (MAME) helped her move past that painful experience.

Join Khaya Mthethwa as he takes us through his journey from pulling a trailer around the country to telling stories on the big stage in The Lounge Series.

Herman se Mikro-Geheima isn't just a cookery show. The experienced food editor and connoisseur of all things delicious will show you his skills in that department as he cooks alongside a celebrity guest each week.

Die Argitekte is a new home-and-garden TV show that is perfect for architecture lovers. In each episode, a noted local architect takes viewers on a tour of three spaces. The first space is one they designed themselves, the second a space designed by an architect they admire and the third is any structure or space that they find inspiring or extraordinary.

Imagine a dating show where couple’s relationships unfold in reverse. In Date, Agteruit, potential couples begin with their engagement and move backward through the steps of life. It takes an inside look at what makes successful relationships tick all within one condensed day.
