Security Breaches

Every month you pay a security company to guard you and your belongings. But can you trust them implicitly? Carte Blanche investigates three unrelated Johannesburg robberies that seem to have a lot more in common than meets the eye.

Missing Millions

It’s a mysterious illness that is notoriously difficult to diagnose and even describe. It causes debilitating fatigue and makes normal everyday activities such as getting out of bed, an impossible task. Affecting millions of people worldwide and after years of research, doctors are finally closer to finding a cause for this crippling disease. Carte Blanche looks into Chronic Fatigue – also known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.

Producer: Anna-Maria van Niekerk
Presenter: Devi Sankaree Govender

Harties Hyacinth

Floating on the surface of a river or dam, water hyacinth seems a pretty plant with a purple flower. But it is in fact one of the world’s most invasive and rapidly proliferating aquatic weeds. For ten years the Department of Water and Sanitation had nurtured their programme to keep the hyacinth and algae at bay on the Hartbeespoort dam, but last year they pulled the plug. Now, millions of these plants have taken over Gauteng’s Magalies River blocking it entirely in areas. Carte Blanche gets onto the dam and wades into the controversy in search of answers.

Producer: Joy Summers

One Meal a Day

It’s a global obsession and controversial debate: what is the optimal diet required for human beings? How often and how much should we eat? Some say three square meals a day are ideal, others say six smaller meals are better. One school of thought that’s seemingly gaining traction says the answer is far simpler. Carte Blanche asks: are human beings biologically programmed to thrive on only a single meal a day?

Producer: Eugene Botha
Presenter: Devi Sankaree Govender
