We have two that I want to mention. Born-Frees just ended. It is a show that follows the lives of kids born in 1994, thusly named Born-frees. Interesting concept.

The second show is called “Forgive and Forget.” I thought it interesting because you can see why it has automatic appeal here in South Africa. However it is not a show where blacks and colours confront and eventually forgive whites who killed their black or coloured family members during apartheid. It’s just normal family and friend issues. But you can see the foundation for the show set in the country’s history and the efforts for reconciliation.
