DStv Compact Plus brings the party to you this month!

June is Pride so look out for the delightful and dazzling We’re Here Season 2 as Shangela, Eureka and Bob The Drag Queen set out to perform their much-needed yassification of small town USA. With Youth Day on Thursday, 16 June, we’re bringing you coming of age stories like Tarique’s in Power Book II: Ghost Season 2. And we’re mad about dads, too. Get dad a little DStv action for Father’s Day on Sunday, 19 June, and he’ll be able to watch Ross Kemp: Shipwreck Treasure Hunter Season 1, or and you’ll be able to enjoy fascinating doccies like Chernobyl, Fukushima: Living With The Legacy together as a family…

but maybe be very, very quiet and unproblematic while mom has her fave murder shows on, like Twisted Killers Season 1.

While you’re onboard the June party bus, check out where you can find all the doccies around and coverage of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee from Thursday, 2 June to Sunday, 5 June. And we’ll tell you when you can set up your watch party for a glam night in, with this year’s mid-year awards show like the DStv Mzansi Viewers' Choice Awards, the MTV Movie & TV Awards and the BET Awards.

Small town America, break out your makeup, your glitter, your lashes and your sequins! Shangela, Eureka and Bob The Drag Queen are back on the road to show you how to drag up your life, learn to love yourself, break out of the boxes that people’s hate has stuffed you into, and find a loving, open community. Yes, it’s that gay agenda, reuniting families! The sheer heart of this show makes it a joy to watch before you even get to the fun outfits. And it’s perfect for Pride month.

Powerbook II Ghost
Power Book II: Ghost Season 2

Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr, who really steps up his performance) is living out his dead father’s struggle as the mirage of a normal life continues to taunt him. From episode 1, he’s desperate to hide the fact that he murdered one of his college professors. He and crime queen Monet (Mary J Blige) are on the brink of losing what’s left of their families, too, with Monet’s son barely escaping season 1 with his life. PS: If you make a miniature coffin every time a character is killed off this season, you’ll end it with a whole graveyard.

Chernobyl 1920X1080
Chernobyl, Fukushima: Living With The Legacy

It’s been 30 years since the Ukraine’s Chernobyl nuclear power plant meltdown and 5 years since Japan’s Fukushima plant went hot. Now camera crews are going inside the exclusion zone to reveal what has become of the abandoned schools, playgrounds, homes, and shops as nature takes over, despite still deadly levels of radiation. We find out how far the contamination really spread from the people whose lives are still being impacted by the fallout and learn what the Chernobyl survivors are telling the people of Japan to help them to avoid deadly mistakes, and to give them hope for the future.

Twisted Killers
Twisted Killers Season 1

This true crime series lives up to its title, so keep the lights on! Among the cases, Quincy Jovan Allen goes on a shooting spree as practice for being a Mafia hitman. Matthew Hoffman, later nicknamed The Leaf Killer, stuffs his victims into hollow trees and keeps a teen rape victim prisoner is a basement filled with leaves. And New York-based killer Nathaniel White claims to be a vampire, and that he was inspired by the movie Robocop, after stabbing and mutilating multiple women and teenage girls, cutting open a pregnant woman, and taking out her baby.

Shipwreck Treasure Hunters With Ross Kemp (15)
Ross Kemp: Shipwreck Treasure Hunter Season 1

British actor and reporter Ross takes us on diving trips around the British coast to uncover the sea’s secrets, with help from expert diver Emily Turton, maritime archaeologist and professional diver Mallory Haas, and dive supervisor Neil Brock (it’s worth watching just to spend time with Ross’s fascinating dive team). Learn about the wreck of the Iona II, a secret transatlantic slaver’s ship off Plymouth that sunk in the 1860s, the sunken German fleet in the Scapa Flow, and experimental submersible 1920s aircraft carrier the M2 that never came up again, drowning everyone on board.
