About Scott Balson

Scott Balson (image above) is based in Australia and is the HEART and SOUL of this Community Channel. His love for Africa and specifically South Africa is fast reaching legendary status.

Scott dedicates his life and countless hours a day, to broadcasting and exposing the real truth about South Africa and about the politics, corruption, maladministration and all happenings in South Africa, something that the Main Stream Media in South Africa is simply no longer capable or willing to do.

The wide-reaching corruption in government, politics, politicians, government organisations and government entities, as well as the inability of the South African government and South African security services – to serve and protect the people of South Africa – spurs Scott on to protect the innocent and the minority groups in South Africa and to bring to the attention of the world the plight of ordinary South Africans.

Since the covid scam in early 2020 and the publication of Klaus Schwab’s book “Covid-19 and the great reset” Scott has expanded his focus to cover global tyranny and the new world order dramatically expanding Loving Life TVs viewing audience.  

Scott is a proud and passionate man and he serves as an example to all of us. He personifies dedication, commitment and someone willing to stand up for the principles he believes in, often at his own personal expense and often up against the wrath of those he exposes!

Scott is a best selling author of 8 books. His latest work, Children of the Mist, the lost tribe of South Africa, has taken 30 years of research through collecting a vast library of rare and valuable contemporary books and documents. The book follows the tragic history of the Griqua people from their forebears pre-1652 to their fractured state today.

Scott travelled to South Africa to launch this marvelous work and the launch took place at Kokstad during the Griqua celebration of Adam Kok III’s birthday at the old laager on 14 October 2007.

Scott’s interest in the Griqua stemmed from his time in the Republic of South Africa. He was schooled in South Africa and thereafter he worked for Barclays Bank in Ixopo – working at the Umzimkhulu agency near Kokstad in the late 1970’s and his groundbreaking research developed from there.

Scott’s biggest wish is for the South African landscape to return to such a state of normality, that he can move back to the country which he so adores.


About Us

The Loving Life TV online news platform was established in December 2020 due to the constant interference and censoring of Scott’s videos on his Youtube channels, Loving Life, Loving Life 2020 and Loving Life LIVE.

This is the NEW, IMPROVED and LIBERATED platform, where all Scott’s EXPLOITS and NEWS as well as LIVE STREAMS will serve as a historical record and be enjoyed and cherished, for years to come.

When you search the archive of well over 10,000 videos on this Website of this platform you will see that this mission to alert the world about what is going on in South Africa has been a relentless daily task by Scott Balson for years.

Scott’s YouTube videos were viewed over 25 million times over two years on Youtube and it was, with great regret, as a result of the YouTube platform’s invasive censorship policies that Scott, our host, decided to transition from Google / Youtube to this NEW platform in December 2020. The transition is now complete and Loving Life TV is now totally independent of Big Tech and our videos on this platform are viewed well over 15 million times a month by people from around the world, with a largely traditional support from people living in South Africa and ex pat South Africans from around the globe.

Welcome to the huge and fast growing Loving Life Family!

For several years Marlena de Villiers has been Scott’s effective right hand and Personal Assistant – even though Scott is based in Brisbane, Australia and Marlena in Gauteng, South Africa. Marlena has been instrumental in driving the almost nightly Live Streams on Loving Life TV

In Canada Natalie (Nat) Quinns manages Loving Life TVs forum which has grown dramatically over the last year since its inception in mid-2021. Many of our past guests on live streams now participate actively with regular articles in our forum. Nat also administers our 24/7 chat where the Loving Life community can interact and often share their favourite music with others.

Rudi Geldenhuys, our web master, established Loving Life TV in December 2020 and does a remarkable job in keeping it up and running as our monthly traffic grows dramatically.

We have regular weekly contributors whose videos are posted on Loving Life TV. These include:

  1. Pastor Dan Berriman’s popular weekly Sunday Service which has been published every Sunday since early in the covid lockdown (from Easter 2020).
  2. Author Fiona Timms weekly videos on her life in South Africa as a young woman (1960/70s). Fiona grew up in the Natal midlands close to Michaelhouse where Scott attended boarding school in the late 1960s. Fiona also has her weekly recitation of the works of Herman Charles Bosman. As an elderly ME sufferer Fiona is bed-bound.
  3. Dr Ellapen Rapiti with his insightful perspectives as a frontline doctor in South Africa on the covid/”vaccine” scam

(You can search their videos in our archives)

Yes, we have an amazing family and community here at Loving Life! Why don’t you become part of it?

Our objectives now and in the future:

The objectives of this new platform – outside the censorship of YouTube / Google – remain the same as Scott’s vision when he took this project on as his life mission all those years back. With Rudi’s web development skills the platform now includes, as selected by Scott,

  • Contributing Authors and Creators,
  • Citizen News Reporters covering live events like protests here,
  • a large and active forum,
  • third party community video channels (with a South African focus)
  • others on unfolding events
  • and a future online radio station.

The focus will be on South Africa as we provide our team of voluntary reporters and contributors with this back-up channel, free of the autocratic hand of the big Internet platforms.

This platform aims to have sections dedicated to projects like the independence of the Western Cape, the Real History of South Africa and a section on the importance of maintaining Christian values in a screwed up world.
