I just read some disturbing news here. They are saying that we may no longer see Generations on our screens very soon! Apparently the SABC can’t find the money to pay its outstanding bills for programmes which have already been delivered to the broadcaster. “South Africa’s most popular daily soap opera, Generations has debt of R9million. The last new episodes of Generations will be shown at the start of June, with no new episodes to follow,” says the article. The producers refuse to provide the SABC with any new video material until the broadcaster pays the outstanding debts
This is not the first time I have heard this and it looks like this is quite serious. What will be do without Our Soapie? The SABC has to make a plan soon so they can pay the producers of the shows. It is not only Generations that is being affected but other soapies such as 7de Laan and Isidingo could also be off the air soon!
