Spy Cables

The leak of hundreds of highly classified State Security Agency documents has placed South Africa on a diplomatic knife-edge. The explosive contents finger SA as a halfway-house for terror groups and highlight the State’s alleged inability to secure classified information. Who might have leaked these documents? And, why? Carte Blanche investigates.

Wentworth Drugs

Buildings pockmarked with bullet holes are home to innocent people who live in constant fear that each new day could herald more casualties of the gang war raging in Wentworth, Durban. Carte Blanche’s cameras go into the heart of this gangland to meet the bereaved mothers and fathers taking on the rot.

Producer: Julie Laurenz

Presenter: Bongani Bingwa

Martin Pistorius

Carte Blanche hears exclusively from the ‘Ghost Boy’ – Martin Pistorius – who titled his bestselling book in this way after recovering from a devastating illness that trapped him in a paralysed body for 12 years. Inconceivably, during this time no one suspected that he was aware of every tiny detail of his life.

Producer: Nicky Troll

Presenter: Derek Watts

From joining the South African National Youth Orchestra at the age of 12, to touring with the Miyagi Orchestra and performing in the prestigious concert halls of Stockholm & Berlin. Carte Blanche meets a 14-year old with an extraordinary gift.
