DStv honours our diversity… and similarities

Posted by radio On September - 20 - 2018

September is Heritage Month and we’re celebrating this special time by releasing a fascinating, South African-produced documentary on DStv Catch Up.

DStv Now can be accessed online at now.dstv.com or through the app for tablets and smartphones. The app is free to download on the Google Play Store or Apple App Store and is available to all DStv customers. Live channels and DStv Catch Up content is available to all DStv customers.

 

Entitled So Where Do I Come From, the show centres around DNA and gene mapping – technologies that reveal some incredible truths about people and our shared history. In the words of geneticist, and associate producer of the show, Dr Himla Soodyall: “We can change our language, culture or place of abode in the space of a generation, but our genes will always remain an indelible record of our ancestral past.”

 

While South Africa is a country renowned for rightly celebrating its diversity, there is also a lot that we have in common. “Thanks to this documentary,” says Yolisa Pahle, CEO for General Entertainment at MultiChoice, “understanding the things that we have in common should unite us without taking away from the power of our diversity.  So Where Do I Come From is the  story of the fundamental building blocks of life  – our DNA.”

 

And there’s no escaping the truth of our past, as gene mapping reaches back into the annals of time, going back an astonishing 170 000 years! So Where Do I Come Fromtested the DNA of several well-known South Africans – such as former President, Nelson Mandela – and the results were astonishing.

 

 

Don’t forget to tune into this riveting documentary on Catch Up on DStv Now from 24 September, or on Catch Up Plus on your internet connected DStv Explora.
