Charlie’s Angels became an instant cultural phenomenon and shot to the top of the ratings after premiering in 1976. It made overnight stars of its original crime-fighting “Angels”, Farrah Fawcett-Majors, Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith and the trio made the cover of Time magazine that year. It went on to spawn two hit feature films of the same name.
However as Behind The Camera The Unauthorized Story of Charlie’s Angels (True Movies, Monday March 28 at 20h45) reveals all was not plain sailing. The show’s original title was Alley Cats; Farah Fawcett-Majors, then the loving wife of Six Million Dollar Man star Lee Majors took the role for a laugh while John Forsythe became the unseen Charlie as a last-minute replacement after a big-name star showed up drunk.

DHL Stormers Head Coach Robbie Fleck has made four changes and a positional switch in the starting XV to face the Cell C Sharks at DHL Newlands.
There is just one injury-enforced change to the backline, with Kurt Coleman stepping up at flyhalf in the absence of Rob du Preez who has been ruled out for up to 12 weeks with a knee injury. This means that the talented Jean-Luc du Plessis could make his Vodacom Super Rugby debut if he comes off the bench to replace Coleman.
In the front row props JC Janse van Rensburg and Frans Malherbe get their first opportunity to start this season, with Oli Kebble and Vincent Koch taking their respective places on the replacements bench.
Siya Kolisi will also get his first start of the Vodacom Super Rugby season, with Schalk Burger taking the No.8 jersey and Nizaam Carr moving to No.6 in place of Sikhumbuzo Notshe who is set for an impact role off the bench. Continue reading

Sarandon takes the role of the doctor, whose battle with breast cancer while working at a research station in Antarctica made headlines around the world, in Ice Bound, to be aired on True Movies (DSTV Channel 138) on Friday, March 11 at 20h45.

As the only doctor at the research station, Nielson had to diagnose herself and then work out her medical options. What she couldn’t do was fly to the nearest surgeon because the station was closed for nine months to incoming and outgoing traffic. And at one point, she seriously considered operating on herself.
Playing Nielsen, a strong woman who wanted a new adventure and was trying to escape an unhappy past, was appealing to Sarandon. Continue reading
