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.

Ottery Youth Centre

Season 5 Episode 25

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 7:30pm

“There comes a time where you feel the pressure’s too much…..especially when you’re feeling down…..nothing that you do for them works. Then the one that you least expect it from walks up to you, gives you a hug and tells you; ‘I am willing to change, will you help me?’ It takes you from subzero to rebirth and it’s a lekker feeling”

The dedicated team at the Ottery Youth Care Centre work tirelessly to rehabilitate troubled youths. Most have committed criminal offenses and instead of a prison sentence they are sent to the Ottery Youth Care Centre. The Centre provides rehabilitative care and education to young boys between the ages of 12-18 years who more often that not come from broken homes. The team relates their experiences, their triumphs and tribulations and the passion that motivates them each day.

Sugar Daddies

Season 4 Episode 32

Tue, 18 Mar 2014 12:15pm

Reviled in the press, accused by the government of spreading HIV and lumped by society along with paedophiles as sexual parasites you would think that sugar daddies would think twice before being filmed talking in an exuberant and unembarrassed way about dating girls young enough to be their daughters. Not so.

These ageing studs positively salivate as they share their love affairs with school girls, convinced that they bring nothing but pleasure and material assistance into the lives of their needy and deprived sugar babes. 

What do their wives or partners think? Lies and subterfuge are the name of the game until someone slips up and a condom in a jacket pocket gives the game away… alas, that condom often never gets put on and as they graze the pastures rich in nubile prey, our sugar daddies are often spreading more than love…

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.
