SP2F TV VOL#1 introduces you to a 29 year old shebeen king, Setswana poet, hunter, graphic designer and lyricist named ChekArt. Through his angular camera work the viewer bends and twists to angles that better reflect this rappers daily life. This is what Reality Television should look like- unscripted. Our protagonists uncanny ability to be in the wrong places at the right time is what makes this such a compelling film.

A little about the episodes:
BLACKOUT: Tebogo tells a story about a beautiful girl he picked up at shebeen, brings her home only to find that his prepaid electricity has run out. He goes to a neighbour - who lends him a paraffin heater and two candles. The rest you have to make out yourself, I'm sorry.

PARAFFIN CRISIS: Tebogo and his friend (Maizemeal) are watching late evening news. Maizemeal has a heart wrecking confession for Tebogo.

Mzwigga On Board: An ordinary weekend at Washignton Tavern with South Africa rapper Mzwigga of Native Rhythms Records.

Chimurenga Interlude: A little skit we made for our poeples at http://www.chimurenga.co.za

MANDELA'S DEATHBED: Tebogo and his mate react to news reports of Nelson Mandela's hospitalisation. They wonder if news of his illness aren't just a conspiracy, a plot to cover up the former state president's death.

TRADITIONAL HLRZ: In this 6 part episode we meet Tebogo the hunter and passionate greyhound breeder.
1>MOTLHANNE KE PHAPHAMA: Maizemeal comes to buy his morning cap (Black Label 750 ml aka Tamatie) and he comes with a dream that needs interpretation.
2>MAFORA KA BLOEMFONTEIN: Mafora is Sesotho for French people also it is the official name for area where Tebu lives. Here we meet his hunting gang after an unsuccessful day at the farm.
3>LAST CATCH IN BLOEMFONTEIN: Tebu and his gang lament the unscrupulous hunters who tend to hunt at night. Here you see them with a trophy.
4>MAKEISHEN CROSSBREED: The hunters at a shebeen formulating how to breed a successful and unique "bastard."
5>TRADITIONAL HEALERS: When Tegobo is not on the field hunting antelope, he is helping people vaccinating their puppies.
6>O BUA WRONG: In this episode we meet Maizemeal once again, who's puppies have been stolen. He explains that pets like people are God Almighty's creation and likewise we must love them too and treated with respect.

The End.
