Exclusive to Caucasians: Ade’s Radical Journey

10pm, Channel 4

Ade Adepitan, a Nigerian British journalist, shows an impressive level of openness and curiosity as he becomes the first Black person to spend a week in Orania, a town in South Africa that is exclusively inhabited by white people. Despite being seen by many as an attempt to revive or maintain the harmful beliefs of apartheid, Orania is largely disregarded by the South African government. During his time in Orania, Adepitan engages with locals, visits a school (where he witnesses a cringe-worthy play), and is ejected from the community’s main Afrikaner Protestant church. As he asks important but uncomfortable questions, the animosity towards him becomes increasingly evident.

Cannot reword.

Reworded: Mackenzie’s criminal story provides a captivating glimpse into London in 1980 – a transforming city struggling to move from its postwar past to a modern international center. Along with this, it serves as a fantastic and intense mystery set in the gritty underworld. The redevelopment of the Docklands motivates long-time gangster Harold (played by Bob Hoskins) to establish a legitimate presence through a large land deal with the American mafia.
