Credit Profile Theft

Driving a shiny new car off the showroom floor is a thrilling experience. Knowing you never have to pay for it makes it even better. Carte Blanche’s undercover team tracks down clever crooks using stolen IDs and fake credit profiles to get instant, legitimate bank-approved finance before driving off the dealership floor… never to be seen again.

Heritage to Decay

Durban’s Berea was once home to classic Victorian mansions, but decay is rapidly setting in and changing the face of this prized historical suburb. Residents are up in arms about several historical homes left to rot and later being demolished to make way for high-rise developments.  Carte Blanche asks – is enough being done to protect Durban’s heritage?

Presenter: Derek Watts

Balaclava Rapist

He’s been positively linked to over 100 rape cases in 10 years, but is still a free man. How has South Africa’s most prolific serial rapist managed to foil police for so long? Carte Blanche follows the trail of the so-called Balaclava Rapist.

Forgotten World

One of the most remarkable archaeological and historical heritage sites on the subcontinent, Bokoni covers 10 000 square kilometres of the Mpumalanga escarpment. Yet despite its size, significance and astonishing beauty, it has remained a forgotten world, ignored by scholars, tourism and heritage agencies. Carte Blanche visits the site of remarkable formations that evidence massive human settlement before colonialism.
