TV series, 1986-1995
Youth series about a young boy’s secret crime fighting adventures. Borrie Veldt seems like any other 12-year-old boy. He watches the A-Team, reads comic books and fights with his older sister, Rienie. At night, however, Borrie takes his BMX, slingshot and sister’s black ballet stockings and, disguised as Die Swart Kat (Black Cat), he solves the crimes that baffle his detective father. He always leaves his calling card on the scene in the hope that Die Swart Kat will get recognition for his daring and brilliance. Unfortunately, the card never gets discovered and to Borrie’s great frustration, the honour of catching the villains usually goes to the young and dashing detective sergeant Kobus Bril, Rienie’s boyfriend and a great hero in the Veldt household. The series was based on the popular stories and books by Chris Sassner.
