Lots to enthrall viewers on TV this week

2010-09-06 00:00

A NEW season of SABC2’s successful consumer rights show Speak Out returns to our screens on September 8 at 9.30 pm.

The show, which aims to resolve difficult consumer issues and to speak for the voiceless, will be presented by Duncan Senye and Vuyelwa Booi (7de Laan).

With strong investigative research behind it, the team exposes bad service and shows consumers how to handle difficult situations. So often people just lose their temper and then nothing is achieved.

One of the features in the show is “Hero and Zero of the Week”, in which the team looks at service providers who have gone out of their way to provide exceptional service and those who have failed to correct their mistakes in any way at all.
