Car ads cluttering Tuesday nights

Tuesday is my TV night, and all my friends know not to call, interrupt, phone for a moan or even pop in. (Yes, I know I'm getting old.) With the likes of 'Smallville', 'Prison Break' and '24' on, supper is made early and then the couch marathon starts. 'Smallville' is sponsored by Citroen, 'Prison Break' by Peugeot, '24' by Kia... 24 May 2006

Does my employer own every idea I conceptualize?

I'm employed to produce a certain TV show, but when I come up with a concept for a new show (totally different from the one I work on) why should my employer own MY concept? 2 Mar 2006

Barbaric Fear Factor

I'm disgusted and disappointed in Fear Factor and e.tv for actually broadcasting such a barbaric program. The poor people desperate for R250 000 are blinded by money and the contracts they signed are for cheap entertainment. 24 Jan 2006

SABC TV commissioning

One production house is responsible for two sitcoms and some drama on SABC TV. Is it because there are not enough production houses to do the work or is this one particularly above the rest? 9 Oct 2005

Money begets money

I am by no means a newcomer to the television industry, having spent a good six years of my life working for a successful production house, but like most people I realised that the time to 'go it alone' had come and I'm giving it my best shot. The thing that confounds me the most tho', is the submission process. 2 May 2005

Cartoons these days are not child-friendly

Is MNET Almighty?

On Sunday night when I heard that M-Net was not to screen "Bruce Almighty" as advertised I thought the reason would be a religious one, after all when the film was released there was a relatively large outcry. However I was astonished to hear that it was in sensitivity to the Tsunami. 7 Feb 2005

Sun Silk ''Brazilian'' Ad

The most annoying ad to ever be flighted. The girl with the limp hair who feels like part of the furniture, but then gets all excited and Brazilian because of her shampoo. 20 Jan 2005

Are South Africans congenitally boring?

Having suffered for the cause and submitted myself to several episodes of The Block, I can only conclude that South Africans are the most boring people on the planet. 12 Oct 2004
