“Wild at Heart” Series 4 and “Sea Patrol” season 3 roll out the year for Hallmark.

January also sees the return of two familiar shows with brand new series not seen before in South Africa. Wild at Heart series is running on Sundays at 20h00 and Sea Patrol season 3 premieres on January 25 at 19h10.

Wild at Heart deals with life for the Trevanions at Leopards Den, the game park in Africa. In this series, things are changing. After the tragic loss of Sarah in the fire, Danny and the family have to move on. A new animal hospital has been built and a new vet called Alice, accompanied by her daughter Charlotte, has been hired to aid them in the reconstruction process. There is another new face in the shape of Alice's brother Rowan, who becomes ensconced with businesswoman Vanessa at the neighbouring game park Mara. Danny also has to deal with the possibility of losing his stepson Evan, since Sarah's death means he should legally go back to his real father in the UK.

Sea Patrol is about adventures that forge deep and lasting friendships. Every hour of every day, in all weather imaginable, young men and women battle the elements and the odds to defend Australia's borders and enforce its economic zone. They provide security, surveillance, protection, support and relief for the world's largest island and longest coastline, facing two of the biggest and most dangerous oceans on the face of the earth. The series offers explosive action and monumental stillness with a closeness to nature through the awesome beauty of tropical waters, its wildlife, and the terrifying intensity of tropical storms. There are mysterious events and deadly consequences. Patrol Boat sailors say their job is the best in Navy, a small boat and its crew facing real dangers -not just war games.
