WHEN the se­ries, Siyayinqoba (Beat It), first aired in 1999 it fo­cused on peo­ple liv­ing with HIV and Aids, but the se­ries later ex­tended to other is­sues. The new se­ries, which fo­cuses on health is­sues, was re­cently launched at the White Space Rooftop Bar in Salt River, Cape Town. It started air­ing on SABC1 on 6 Oc­to­ber and will air 13 episodes ev­ery Fri­day. The new sea­son fea­tures doc­u­men­taries put to­gether by four young women who run girl clubs in KwaZulu Natal. The clubs, fa­cil­i­tated by the Com­mu­nity Me­dia Trust (CMT), the or­gan­i­sa­tion be­hind Siyayinqoba, linked young women and men­tors at weekly meet­ings to dis­cuss is­sues they faced in their com­mu­ni­ties. Siyayinqoba is well­known for be­ing a show about real peo­ple, telling real sto­ries.
