Bell Pottinger: The PR Disaster
The embattled British Public Relations Firm, Bell Pottinger faced yet another week of turmoil. CEO James Henderson resigned ahead of the release of the scathing Henderson Report, which detailed how the company, helped manufacture racial tension in South Africa. Now the British Public Relations and Communications Association has banned the firm for the next five years. Ironically, could this public relations disaster spell the end of this global PR giant? Carte Blanche untangles the web.
Presenter: John Webb
The N2 between KZN and the Eastern Cape has become a treacherous route. Violent looters target moving trucks, ripping cargo off the back of the trailer and within minutes, make off with millions of rands worth of goods. It’s costing the economy billions, so why has nothing been done to stop the looting? Carte Blanche exposes this growing trend.
Presenter: Devi Sankaree Govender
