What we do

Inspire. Challenge. Debate.

Street Talk is the groundbreaking South African television series encouraging citizens to debate, discuss and express their views. From grassroots to the establishment, our engaging programmes expose the lived realities and uncensored views and solutions of ordinary South Africans.

Because we believe that South Africans are more alike than they think, we have committed to breaking down barriers born out of our past and present circumstances. The Street Talk methodology utilizes the dynamic of conversation, facilitating exciting, informative and sometimes controversial dialogue.

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

The Brackenfell students are discussing racism and how it affects them. They also tell how they can’t even go and study where they want because of the racial war we have here in South Africa. They also discuss how important it is to take responsibility for your own life and not blame the government for everything that is wrong. They maintain that if a white person calls a black person ” stupid ” it’s a racist remark, but if a white person calls another white person stupid, it’s not.

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.
