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.

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.
