* Umdlalo We Mpilo Yami, Mzansi Magic, 20.00

A young, aspiring soccer player thinks his dream has come true when he comes face to face with a national soccer hero, who takes an interest in his talent. However, his dreams crumble when he is forced to take care of his two younger siblings after the sudden death of his parents.

* Zone-In: Kalawa Jazzmee, Channel O, 20.30

There can be few South African record labels more worthy of a Zone-In feature than Kalawa Jazzmee. Founded by Don Laka, Bruce Sebitlo and Oskido Mdlongwa, who were later joined by Mandla Spikiri, Mahoota Sibika and M’Jokes, the label first made a splash with Boom Shaka in 1993. From then on it was up, with Kalawa credited with taking kwaito to the masses and introducing fans to a great selection of artists. And the label is showing no signs of slowing down. If you’re a fan of homegrown music, don’t miss this special.

* The Bachelor - Canada, Vuzu, 20.30

It’s the conclusion you won’t want to miss. You have seen it all before, but there is no telling how this one ends. One thing is certain, there will be tears.

* Street Court, CBS Reality, 20.00

In Street Court people go Old Testament on each other to solve their disputes. Forget the four walls of a courtroom, here parties do everything outdoors, right where the crime happened. It is crude in parts, but funny.
