Carte Blanche: The Game of Geysers II
Two months ago we exposed an R800-million solar geyser tender that had many wondering just who benefits. Certainly not those with badly installed and leaking geysers. Carte Blanche goes on a hunt for evidence that the roll out was built on a lie.
Carte Blanche: Technology
Carte Blanche is celebrating 25 years of broadcasting with a touch of nostalgia. Remember the days when there were no mobile phones, no Internet? And when Derek’s hair looked like Rod Stewart’s?
Carte Blanche: Sexual Offences Courts
The stats are shocking and, it’s said, conservative. Only one in nine sexual assault cases in South Africa is reported and conviction rates are extremely low. We report on renewed efforts to win this war.
Carte Blanche: Strong man
He claimed to be a Strongman with 19 World Records under his belt, and also managed to sweep several women clean off their feet. But, in reality, was the strongman nothing but a conman? Carte Blanche finds out.
Carte Blanche: Blast from the past
The country’s longest-running current affairs show – and the longest running programme over consecutive years on local television – Carte Blanche has stuck by its motto of “you have the right to see it all".
Carte Blanche: Birthday Book
To commemorate the Carte Blanche's long running success, Managing Editor Jessica Pitchford has penned a special book, Carte Blanche 25 Years, the Stories Behind the Stories, signed copies of which viewers stood the chance to win by tweeting during the show .
Carte Blanche: Ruda Landman
Derek chat to his very first co presenter Ruda Landman.
Carte Blanche: Syria
Cripple his military, not an option that worked in Iraq but let's see what happens in Syria.

When is M-Net’s Open Time closing?
M-Net’s Open Time closes on 1 April 2007. The final Open Time broadcast is on Saturday 31 March.
When is Open Time coming to an end? Why?
On the 31st of March. This decision was made by the The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) last year.
Why is Open Time closing?
Last year ICASA (The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa) ruled in favour of closing M-Net's Open Time window.
Will M-Net’s schedule between 17:00 and 19:00 change when Open Time closes?
Earlier this year, M-Net introduced an hour of daily drama between 18:00 and 19:00, with Egoli at 18:00 and Binnelanders at 18:30. This slot has been performing extremely well and will continue after Open Time closes.
(Also note: Open Time viewers who still want to catch Binnelanders and Egoli now have various options – see point 4)
There will changes to programming between 17:00 and 18:00. While Open Time was still running, M-Net used this slot as a promotional window for programmes on its niche channels on DStv channels, like kykNET and GO. As the majority of viewers will already have access to these shows, M-Net will in future give viewers who missed the previous evening’s hour-long prime time series (screened at either 19:00 or 19:30) the opportunity to catch up on all the drama or comedy. The only exception is Thursday evenings. On Thursdays M-Net will screen specials between 17:00 and 18:00.
The 17:00 schedule for April 2007:
Mondays - Stand-Off
Tuesdays - ER season 12
Wednesdays - Smallville season 6
Thursdays - Specials
Fridays - Shark season 1
SuperSport fills the 17:00 – 19:00 slot on Saturdays.
On Sundays Everwood is screened at 17:00 and the hit game show Deal or No Deal at 18:00.
