The second series of the popular kykNET talk show “’n Lewe met” kicks off on 18 October 2011, with the first of 13 new episodes that tell the true stories of people who struggle with various mental health conditions every day.
As with the first series, a guest will be in studio every week to share his or her personal experiences of a specific condition with the viewers and the programme anchor, Ruda Landman. Landman will be assisted by Dr Franco Colin, who will discuss each condition from a clinical perspective – including the effect it has on family and friends.
The content of kykNET’s talk show is based on Medihelp Medical Scheme’s DVD series entitled “Living with”. This series looks at conditions such as bipolar mood disorder, panic disorder and alcoholism, among others.
“‘n Lewe met” will be broadcast every Tuesday evening at 8 p.m. with repeats on Wednesdays (3 p.m.), Thursdays (1 a.m.) and Saturdays (10.30 p.m.). The kykNET schedule is as follows:
Ruda Landman started her career in 1977 as a newspaper journalist, after which she also worked in the magazine and broadcasting sectors, amongst others as a newsreader on TV, before she was appointed as co-presenter of Netwerk, South Africa’s first live actuality programme on TV, in 1985. But her most notable ground-breaking work was done for Carte Blanche, where she worked as a presenter from August 1988 to 2007. Ruda is currently a director of the media group Media 24 and serves on the board of Helpmekaar, a private school in Johannesburg. Ruda presented the talk show “‘n Lewe met” on TV in 2010, about people who are living with particular mental health conditions. She will return to the small screen in 2011 to present a new series of 13 episodes in the second season of “‘n Lewe met” with psychiatrist Dr Franco Colin.
