SA gets reality-style Baywatch show following Durban lifeguards on the job

2015-06-18 10:22

Cape Town – A new locally produced reality series, Durban Beach Rescue, will start on the Travel Channel (DStv 179) on Saturday 4 July at 20:00, following various lifeguards across Durban's beaches during the hectic 2014 December holiday.

With unpredictable conditions, both from the sea as well as beach goers, the various lifeguards have their hands full as they cope with high school graduates, lost children, unidentified sea creatures which could be sharks, and massive crowds in the form of holidaymakers.

The 10-episode Durban Beach Rescue which was originally called Heatwave and executive produced by Bronwyn Berry, will play out in double episodes from July on the Travel Channel.

Cameras follow lifeguards across various Durban beaches like Sihle Xaba at Battery Beach, Clint van der Merwe at the Durban beachfront, the senior lifeguard Mxolisi Luthuli at Durban's busiest and most dangerous beach, The Wedge; and Azanda Dlamini who is experiencing her first season as a trainee lifeguard on Battery Beach.

Then there's Sue-Ellen Martin called the black Pamela Anderson who got this nickname from the lifeguards at North Beach, Alvin Mtatshi who is experiencing his first season as acting senior lifeguard at South Beach and Muziwandile Mthethwa from Battery Beach.
