Positive Heroes on Prime Time TV

SABC3 is currently airing “Beyond Positive” a series of 24 minute documentaries revealing the essence of prominent South Africans who have moved from living with the label HIV+ to being regarded as living Beyond+. The key question that underpins the series is how do some people transcend merely living with the virus to living in the zone that is ‘beyond’ the virus?

The ten part series will feature three Positive Heroes: Evelina Tshabalala (20 November), Faghmeda Miller (2 October) and Terresa Frankenberg (23 October).

Dr Reon van Dyk says “Positive Heroes admires all those being profiled and thanks them all for helping to normalise HIV in South Africa“.

The half hour progarmmes are being broadcast on Saturday at 6.30pm on SABC3. The transmission line-up for the whole series is:

Episode 1: Tender – 18 September
Episode 2: Adam – 25 September
Episode 3: Fagmeda 2 October
Episode 4: Joyce – 9 October
Episode 5: Randy – 16 October
