My Feet Are Killing Me Season 2
Dr Brad Schaeffer and Dr Ebonie Vincent are putting their patients back on their feet. Brad has a patient with big toes so long it looks as if her feet are hitchhiking, Ebonie has a patient whose feet look like hooves, and there’s more drama to come with feet split down the middle, growths, extra toes, missing toes, ballet feet, pasta-shaped toenails, extreme calluses, itchy feet, and stinky issues. Above all there’s hope, as the doctors counsel, comfort and get to work.
Watch My Feet Are Killing Me Season 2 from Friday, 13 May at 20:00 on TLC (DStv Channel 135).
Scariest Night of My Life Season 1
People share their tales of terror about the nights when they got to live out their own horror movies, thanks to paranormal encounters. This season, a young mother claims she’s been attacked by evil spirits while trying to cleanse her home, teen siblings’ housesitting nightmares come true, a black mist and the spirit of a little boy haunt an apartment, a screaming ghost girl terrifies urban explorers in an abandoned psychiatric hospital, and a WWII ghost rises on a stormy night in a former asylum.

Secrets of The Zoo: Tampa Season 2
The Vets and animal care experts at ZooTampa take us behind the scenes to show us the daily tasks involved in caring for exotic animals. This season, we’ll follow a pregnant rhino’s journey to motherhood, a young zebra who does not want his vet check-up, panther kittens out exploring, and penguin eggs hatching and more. And we’ll see how the zoo staff prepare the animals for a cold snap in normally sunny Florida, and how they move animals into new enclosures. A must-see for families with animal obsessed kids

Space Invaders Season 1
No matter how much you clean, does your house look messy again just minutes later? In this Australian home makeover series, presenters Peter Walsh, Cherie Barber and Lucas Callaghan have 3 goals: organise and declutter, renovate, and find treasures amidst the chaos. Along the way, we’ll learn family stories about special objects and see how the Space Invaders team spotlights them in the newly tidy home. The end result is so deeply satisfying and relaxing that it’s the perfect wind-down show.
