Some watch television for escape, while others like their entertainment to be intellectually stimulating and rewarding. Kwesé Know (Channel 400) fits the latter category, with a bunch of first-rate international shows that will set the frontal lobe synapses firing.

What do Bill Clinton, Oscar Wilde and Stephen Hawking have in common? They all went to Oxford University, and now you can too with Oxford Union (Weekdays at 18:00 CAT). The Oxford Union is the world’s most famous debating society, and on this show you’ll witness the best of their discussions and debates.

Anthony Bourdain is a chef, author and television personality who achieved international renown with his book Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly. In his multi Emmy Award-winning series Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown (Fridays at 19:30 CAT) he criss-crosses the globe exploring the food and lifestyles of out-of-the-way places.

Bourdain proves that the camera loves a character, and that’s why The Profit (Wednesdays at 18:30 CAT) hosted by Marcus Lemonis is so popular. In the series the charismatic Lemonis, a self-made millionaire, travels America looking for flagging businesses to revive. He invests his own money and applies his well-known principle: people/process/product to flog a dead horse back into life.

If you want to know who you are, you must find out where you come from. In the United States this sentiment is especially relevant given that so many Americans descend from people forcibly uprooted and enslaved. Find Your Roots (Wednesdays at 19:30 CAT), hosted by Henry Louis Gates Jr, combines genetic testing and historical research to piece together the past of noteworthy guests. In one episode Gates explains to Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs that his third-great-grandfather was a free man living in Maryland – a rarity for African Americans in the mid-1800s.

Regardless of our roots, we’re all human. That’s the premise of the inspiring French-made documentary series Human (Mon, Tue & Wed at 21:30 CAT). By profiling a diverse selection of the people who make up humanity, and giving them a chance to tell their stories, we connect with the essence of what makes us one. Human is inspirational and moving, with breath-taking cinematography and artful editing.

That’s but a small taste of the exclusive programming (with the exception of Human) you can find on Kwesé Know (Ch 400). And, for other exclusive shows on Kwesé Know also look out for Restaurant Start Up (Fridays at 18:30 CAT), Brainiac (Tuesdays at 19:30 CAT), Top Ten Architecture (Mondays at 20:30 CAT), and Bicycle Diaries (Fridays at 20:30 CAT)
