Isidingo was created by Gray Hofmeyr and premiered on in July 1998. Labelled as ‘One Nation Viewing’, Isidingo very quickly became a favourite with viewers across the spectrum.
Isidingo explores the lives of the inhabitants of Horizon Deep, and their wealthier counterparts at OnTV! – a television station that moved from Johannesburg to The Deep. The newcomers, the Sibeko family – owners of the first mining project of its kind in Africa, the Ultra Deep project – are not spared any scrutiny.
The village includes people from all walks of life – from lowly mine shaft workers to wealthy executives – and serves as a reflection of South Africa in the new millennium.
The characters and story lines deal with the social and personal issues affecting ordinary people daily – such as heartache, fear, love, failure and triumph. These stories take place on Horizon Deep, Sibeko Gold, The Duncan Hotel, the glamourous surroundings of OnTV! and the Bokamoso game farm.
With over 3000 episodes in the bag (and many more to come), Isidingo continues to be the Africa’s top daily drama.
