    TV Series About South Africa (Wild at Heart, Life is Wild)

    I've watched some episodes from these two TV series about South Africa, from the Hallmark Channel:

    Wild at heart



    The story of an English family who move to the South African bush to set up and run a game reserve - and sort out the problems within the family itself. When the series begins, Danny Trevanion (a widower and vet in his early forties) is living in England with his eighteen-year-old daughter Rosie, Sarah (his wife of six months) and Sarah's two children from her previous marriage, eight-year-old Olivia and thirteen-year-old Evan. Family tensions are running high but when Danny brings home a monkey whose life he saved after it was smuggled illegally into the country, Sarah decides that the family should travel together to Africa to return the monkey to its natural habitat - and their world changes forever as they adjust to life in a very different land.
    Life is wild



    Katie Clarke may never forgive her veterinarian father, Danny for dragging their entire blended family out of New York City to spend a year living in a broken-down lodge called The Blue Antelope in a game reserve deep inside South Africa. Everyone in the family – including Katie’s 11-year-old brother Chase, Danny’s second wife Jo, her rebellious teenage son Jesse and 7-year-old daughter, Mia – is sure Danny has lost his mind. But Danny’s reasons go beyond his desire to keep his troubled family together while making a difference in the lives of the people and animals of South Africa: his deceased first wife Claire grew up at The Blue Antelope and it’s still home to her reclusive father Art. While they are definitely outsiders, Katie and the rest of the family are nevertheless beginning to love the breathtaking vistas of the bush country and the vibrant culture enveloping them. A year in this strange but beautiful place might not be so bad after all.
    Has anyone else seen them? How realistic are the presentations of South Africa? It seems to me there was a hidden kind of propaganda especially in "Life is wild", about how the entire white community should accept Zulu as the universal culture.

    I haven't seen the series but from what the descriptions are saying it sounds more like a European or American's fantasy of what "Africa" is like than what it is actually like. The developed parts of South Africa are the same as what one would expect to find in any "Western" country.

    I'm not sure if propaganda was necessarily the agenda in this particular case. More likely the producers decided that their typical audience in the US (and possibly the UK) have certain romanticised ideas of what "Africa" is like, that we all live in the bush, have exotic pets etc. In other words, they're making assumptions that their target audiences are completely ignorant and tailor the stories accordingly to provide them with escapist fantasy.


    One of the most realistic recent portrayals of a South African character in a major film (unfortunately most of the story was outside SA and not particularly good anyway) was Leonardo Di Caprio's "Danny Archer" character in the film "Blood Diamond". His accent was excellent for a none-native, his mannerisms were good and his attitude / mentality was typical. In other words, he was fairly convincing.

    The Life is Wild picture made me suspicious, so I found some episodes on JewTube. It turns out to be exactly what I thought: another Hallmark channel pro-multiculti and xenophilic series. At first it looks normal, the half Afrikaner/half American girl falls for the English boy, and her step brother for the English boy's sister. But no, that has to change and both of them start dating negroes. Their parents don't even oppose it, they act as if they had normal relationships.
    We should really be careful what our children watch. It's best to ban the TV with such brainwashing material out there.

    Hmm, I've not seen the entire show. I knew the boy was in love with the black girl, but I didn't imagine his sister would fall in love with her black friend too. She seemed to suffer lovesick from the white guy.
    Anyway, I've seen a funny scene last weekend. At school, there were classes about the effects of the Apartheid, and how blacks deserve reparations from whites, and apologies. The 11 year old boy suddenly started to apologise to all black peoples in his way, wanted to buy his black colleague lunch, and tried to do the work of the housekeeper. Because of that, the housekeeper got upset because he was standing in the way and almost quit. At the end he was told to stop acting like that.

    Wow! That's quite interesting because this certainly isn't "typical" behaviour. Obviously the media overlords (the you know who's) have an agenda to push over here.

    I agree, throw out the television. It's a brainwashing box controlled by those who seek to enslave and multi-kulti us.

    Reparations, lol.... they've had a black govt in power since 1994 who have managed to break more than they've repaired. Sigh....

    This idiotic "apology complex" does exist, especially amongst certain SA liberals. It's almost identical to the West German warguilt / Nazism complex which is forcefed by the State and the Media into kids from the day they're born. While this brainwashing hasn't been quite as successful or concentrated in SA it is worrying, nevertheless.

    This "shame" technique is one of a number of measures used by those who enslave us. Once they've managed to break a nation down psychologically it becomes much easier to reprogram them with whatever the manilpulators want.

    There is one scene about what's atypical, involving an elephant and a giraffe. The elephant falls in love with the giraffe, and the negro uses it as a metaphor to express the love between negroes and whites, saying even if it's out of the ordinary, the heart wants what it wants.

    I am under the impression the white girl went for the negro because her white boyfriend treated her like shit, and didn't take the relationship seriously. One of their quarrels was about gender roles, because the girl was better at soccer than the boy, and the boy couldn't handle that. Of course the negro is portrayed as the perfect gentleman who rescues the damsel in distress, and puts her on a pedestal.
