Insurers Taken for a Ride

South Africa sees at least 12 serious truck accidents daily which is no surprise when considering that a whopping 67% of trucks on our roads are not roadworthy. But, how do damaged un-roadworthy trucks get the thumbs up from insurance assessors after an accident? In one of Carte Blanche’s biggest stings yet we expose tow trucking companies offering quick-fix truck “make-overs” that fool insurance assessors into approving accident claims.

Political House of Cards

What’s behind the turmoil at core state agencies: the National Prosecuting Authority, the South African Revenue Service and elite crime fighting unit, the Hawks? Carte Blanche investigates three key institutions on a knife-edge, their independence threatened by high-level political interference.

Justice for Sale

Criminals who make case dockets disappear, quite literally get away with murder. All that’s needed is a corrupt police officer and a greedy court official to see a case permanently removed from the court roll and the threat of jail-time nullified. Carte Blanche joins forces with the authorities as we investigate and follow through our leads to the arrests of several high-ranking court officials accused of making cases disappear for a fee.

Live without Limits

25 years ago, while out on a training ride, a truck crashed into athlete John Maclean leaving him paralysed from the waist down. He went on to achieve the unthinkable, from swimming the English Channel and completing the Hawaiian Ironman to participating in the Olympics and Paralympics. John never thought he would walk again. Carte Blanche meets an athlete back on his feet and astounding the medical world by redefining the possibilities for people with spinal injuries.
