CARTE BLANCHE (article first published : 2004-12-17)

While others may be on holiday, the Carte Blanche team will still be hard at work, offering the best in investigative journalism throughout the festive period.

Programmes during the festive period will feature repeats of the best Carte Blanche inserts broadcast during 2004, as well as a mix of new features.

Fake marriages, a repeat of an earlier show will be screened on December 9. Imagine the horror of an excited bride-to-be having to put her wedding on hold after discovering that she's already married. She has never met her 'husband' and has no idea where he's from, but legally she is his wife. She is one of thousands of women in the same boat because of a Home Affairs scam.

Garden of Emptiness offers the harmony and visual power of the Ryoanji zen garden in Japan, otherwise known as the 'Garden of Emptiness' which attracts visitors from all over the world. But what is it about 15 rocks and white sand that sooth the soul of the onlooker? Visual scientist Dr. Gert van Tonder, who has spent the last eight years in Japan unlocking the visual secrets of the garden, presents his opinion.

Enslaved: Francis Bok fights for the rights of slaves in Sudan and lobbies for their freedom.His carefree childhood was turned into a living hell when he was abducted and forced into slavery at the age of seven. For ten long years he lived a life of misery until he finally managed to escape to freedom.

Fairy Circles, another repeat, sees Carte Blanche travelling deep into the Namibian desert to see an age-old natural phenomenon that no-one can explain. Some call them the fairy circles.
