CUR­RENT AF­FAIRS

TV Plus (South Africa) - - YOU ASK -

How does Isidingo man­age to have cur­rent events like the re­cent Black Cof­fee/Aka saga on the show so quickly?

– MASEGO, VIA FACE­BOOK

It boils down to hard work, says ex-Isidingo (1998- cur­rent) head­writer Ro­han Dickson. “They choose news that hap­pens the day be­fore or the night be­fore. Then the writ­ers will wake-up at 04:00 and script the scene. The script is signed- off by 05:30 and it’s sent to set. It will get shot first thing and the scene is sent at speed to the SABC build­ings where it’s edited and added to the episode. NB! See p19.

AKA’s fight with Black Cof­fee even made it onto Isidingo.
