What we do

“Street Talk’s film series aims to counter prejudice and promote a more tolerant society.

Our engaging programmes expose the unbiased ‘point of view’ of people from all walks of life. We show that South Africans share a lot in common and often prejudice comes from misunderstanding and ignorance born out of past and present circumstances.”

Street Talk is a South African television series. Each week, we air hard-hitting, controversial and inspiring stories that inform, educate and motivate our growing audience. We encourage active citizenship for a better South Africa.

“The Constitution of South Africa we haven’t got any input there…the Constitution has been drafted by the experts…they make the Constitution on behalf of finance and industry…they don’t care about the growth of our children, they don’t care about our cultures. Everything has been destroyed….we are trying our best but there’s nothing”

In our modern times, the elderly are ill regarded. Their wisdom goes unheeded and the lessons they have learned have no special place in our fast paced existence. In this episode, a few older persons from Harare share their wealth of knowledge on how to improve South Africa.

Race Relations Part 1 Colour Blind

Season 5 Episode 19

“When it comes to dating coloured and black guys….not really my thing. I’ve had friends who have been in relationships with coloured and black males and a lot of the relationships were very abusive….so I don’t want that for myself”

As the generation born into a completely democratic context, we asked a group of Born Frees: “Is colour an issue when dating?” In ‘Race Relations Part 1 Colour Blind, students discuss racial integration, parental influence on what they believe about race and their own experiences with interracial dating. Begging the question: Have they really been born in a complete blank space?

Sex Talk – Coming soon

Sex Talk


Sex Talk our new studio based series coming soon …

A fun, frank and entertaining weekly television talk show, hosted by Kgomotso Matsunyane, will give South Africans from all walks of life the opportunity to talk about sex and sexuality.

By lifting the veil of secrecy that surrounds the subject of sex we help individuals feel more comfortable with sex and their sexuality, promoting empowering choices, and we help communities deal with the complex social issues surrounding sexual abuse. Sex education campaigns are almost entirely focused on the prevention of disease or pregnancy. Sex talk, on the other hand, offers a positive and empowering context to sex and sexuality through very real and candid conversations with people from all walks of life. Talking about sex in a real and candid way has become vital to changing this reality. That’s why sex talk is so important for South Africa. And we invite you to help us get the conversation going.
