Programming note: Carte Blanche on M-Net this Sunday has Derek Watts profiling the ill Joost van der Westhuizen; also looks at mentalism.

A very interesting line-up for Carte Blanche, M-Net's weekly investigative magazine show, has just been released for this upcoming Sunday evening at 19:00.

Carte Blanche has an interview with Joost van der Westhuizen, the former rugby player who after salacious scandals and a tumultuous private life which ended in divorce, is now battling a debilitating disease. Carte Blanche got the opportunity to spend time with him and the interview is conducted by Derek Watts. Odette Schwegler is the producer.

The second insert  for Carte Blanche this Sunday sounds as intriguing. "Mentalism is a performing art that shows off highly developed intuitive abilities. Entertainers like Derren Brown attribute their 'magic' to being able to read body language and manipulate people through psychological suggestion. Carte Blanche puts Gilan Gork to the test."

The producer is Carol Albertyn and two of the Carte Blanche presenters, Bongani Bingwa and Derek Watts feature in this sure to be fascinating insert.
