Cape Town – This coming Sunday in a longer episode of Carte Blanche at 19:00 on M-Net (DStv 101) the weekly investigative magazine show will get to grips with advanced sex dolls.

Sunday's episode will run for 90 minutes instead of the usual 60 minutes due to the higher age restriction of the Sunday night movie.

In one of the planned inserts presenter Bongani Bingwa will look at advances in sex dolls and how virtual reality is being added to simulated sex experiences.

Here's the run-down of this Sunday's Carte Blanche:

Brian Molefe: The Return
Six months ago Brian Molefe announced he was leaving Eskom. Since then, no investigation has been conducted into his friendship with the Guptas. Now he is back at the helm. Can the Eskom board justify this decision under South African law? Carte Blanche investigates his track record at Eskom, the reasons behind his departure and how he managed to return.

Facebook: Cracking the Code
Facebook is still one of the most popular social media networking sites in the world By using sophisticated algorithms, it has mastered the ability to track a lot of user browsing history, even when you’re not logged on or a registered member of the platform.
This ensures that Facebook can target you with personalised advertising and news to keep you glued for longer. But this feedback loop is fuelling the rise and power of “fake news”. So how has this social media site cracked the code of human interaction over the internet?
