Tissue Regeneration

Can scientists mend a broken heart? New medical research on the zebra-fish could hold the answer. This tiny freshwater fish has an amazing ability to regenerate its own heart, spinal cord and other tissue and this could offer hope of recovery to millions of people living with permanent heart damage after a heart attack. Carte Blanche examines this medical discovery.

Producer: Eugene Botha

Heritage and History

Are we keeping South Africa’s history alive by expertly preserving the country’s heritage sites and museums? Why do some sites offer a first-world tourist experience while other galleries and heritage buildings are closed due to neglect?  Carte Blanche investigates the funding, artefact preservation and quality of exhibits at several historic sites.

Producer: Sasha Schwendenwein

Presenter: Bongani Bingwa

 

Fitspiration

Fuelled by compulsive exercise and restrictive eating, Fitspiration is the health revolution that’s pushing the pursuit of perfection to its limits. From strange dieting regimes to extreme body transformations, there’s almost nothing you can’t find on social media. But in the quest for the perfect body, is this new health drive becoming toxic? Carte Blanche explores this growing trend.

Producer: Nicky Troll

Presenter: Devi Sankaree Govender
