The 90s would not have been the same if these shows were not showing on our small screens. Even though there wasn’t many of them locally produced but there were those we can’t seem to forget. But as life would have it, they’ve grown up and probably don’t look they used to do.

Dynamite Diepkloof Dudes - six boys on bicycles solve crimes in Soweto.


Soul Buddyz - It closely reflected the lives, struggles and joys of 8 -12 year olds in our changing society. The story revolved around a group of children who hang out in a park after school.
