Dan and Michelle use their own life experiences to help guide their children in overcoming physical obstacles and learning to adapt to the world around them.

My Extreme Excess Skin, in which people who have lost massive amounts of weight are followed as they are about to undergo a full body transformation through skin removal surgery. The programme will not only change the featured subjects’ self-image, but will also change their lives.

Predators Up Close With Joel Lambert, a landmark series that reveals nature’s apex predators as they have never been seen before. Using a unique, bespoke polycarbonate and aluminium pod, the Predator team comes face to face with lions, hyenas, polar bears and sharks, close enough to carry out a range of original scientific experiments and to feel the power (and terror) of the natural world’s most effective killing machines.

Is OJ Innocent? The Missing Evidence, in which the question is asked whether sports hero OJ Simpson was perhaps not guilty of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. The six-episode series features investigators who delve into one of history’s most infamous crime cases, exploring never-before-seen evidence.
People Magazine Investigates, in which America’s most popular weekly magazine seeks to uncover the truth behind some of the country’s most infamous characters and crime stories, focusing on extraordinary tales of ordinary people who were thrust into the spotlight.

In addition to Real Time’s on-screen offering, a selection of the channel’s programming is also be available to stream and download through the DStv Now platform, bringing the best of Real Time to viewers in their own time.
