‘Carte Blanche’ Teasers: What will happen this Sunday? May 22 Episode


A sneak peek at some of the action that will take place on Carte Blanche –  M-Net & M-Net HD [101] on Sunday, May 22, 2016 at 19:00 

So, what will happen this weekend on “Carte Blanche?”?

Kroonstad High and Dry

The drought has already crippled many Free State towns. Now crumbling municipal infrastructure is compounding water shortages and could soon leave the province’s third largest town high and dry. With no rain forecast for the next five months and water resources dwindling rapidly, Carte Blanche asks – will Kroonstad be left with not a drop of water in coming weeks?

Produced by Esté de Klerk and Presented by Devi Sankaree Govender.

Miracle Bleach Cure?

It’s little more than household bleach, but is touted as a cure for autism and a gut sanitiser that will cure almost anything from HIV to cancer. Pioneered but discredited in the United States, the mineral solution has now been brought to South Africa where the mixture, containing chlorine dioxide, is being administered to children. But there have been no clinical trials to test this so-called ‘miracle solution’ and experts say it’s downright dangerous. Carte Blanche investigates these medical claims.

Produced by Anna-Maria van Niekerk and Annalie Potgieter and Presented John Webb.

Private Prosecution

It’s a highly unusual, expensive and time-consuming process. But, for ordinary people frustrated with the State withdrawing its case against an accused or simply failing to prosecute, the option of running a private prosecution is another means to secure a conviction. Carte Blanche meets a tenacious family that chose this legal route, to see their daughter’s killer recently convicted and sentenced to 15 years in jail – 11 years after her death.

Produced by Eugene Botha and Presented by Derek Watts.

Secret Sunrise

The straight-laced investor or sales guy in the nearby work station could have spent a couple of hours before work dancing at dawn, out in the open, and you’d never know it! The latest urban craze to leap from social media into reality sees free spirits gather on city rooftops in secret locations for a kaleidoscope of movement and colour where anything goes. Carte Blanche exposes the sunrise’s best kept secret.

Produced by Nicky Troll and Presented by Devi Sankaree Govender.
