'The Garage’ is a 13-part educational TV series that will start on October 21 2013 on DSTV and be broadcast at various times on BBC Entertainment, BBC Knowledge, History Channel, SonyMAX, Discovery Channel and KykNET.  

Each show, its producers say, will be packaged with two-minute educational inserts covering facts, hints and tips about keeping you and your family safe on the road. It will, they add, be presented in a fun and exciting way for all viewers, male and female.


The first show will cover "interesting facts" on brake pads and discs and will include 4x4 action as well as suggesting simple checks for shock-absorbers and be hosted by Michael Bender, race driver Gugu Zulu and Miss SA finalist and model Sian Schlebusch.

The sponsors add: "It aims to be a concise guide to help viewers better to understand their vehicles through informative content, interaction between the presenters and sponsor giveaways. Expect to see it before and after programmes such as Top Gear, Counting Cars and Jesse James Austin Garage."
