This collection includes two South African shows sponsored by Carling Beer, Carling Country and Challenge of Space.
South African Drama, Suspense, Humor and Variety (1969-1971)
Sponsored by Carling Beer, Carling Country tells stories of courageous folks around the world. Each week, Carling Country takes a story from a different classic American novel. John Steinbeck and Mark Twain are among the novelists. Stories vary from Steinbeck’s tale about the courage and spirit of a young Mexican lad, to a yarn about the mind of a maniac and the terror he creates. Whether it’s drama, suspense, or humor you seek, this show is sure to please with its wide variety. Unvarying throughout the program, however, is a consistent thread of good writing.

Challenge of Space is a fun show that combines the feeling of a western with the adventures of outer space. The series tells epic stories about a time when man has conquered the near planets, when shooting to Mars is as simple as seeing the Pyramids along the Nile, when humans zoom their space ships to far off galaxies at the drop of a hat. Sponsored by Carling Beer, Challenge of Space is a blast! So grab your helmet and get into your capsule, it’s time to launch yourself into this South African sci-fi serial.
