Hour long Oscar Pistorius special report Sunday on Carte Blanche on M-Net, before South Africa's 'trial of the century'.


Carte Blanche on M-Net will have an hour long TV special report on Oscar Pistorius this Sunday, 16 February, at 19:00 before South Africa's "trial of the century" starts on 3 March.

The Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius known as the "bladerunner" shot and killed his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day, 14 February last year. A trial in which he is accused of premeditated murder, will start in March.

Carte Blanche anchor Derek Watts teased that production company Combined Artistic Productions were working on an Oscar Pistorius TV special earlier last month.

Combined Artistic Productions is also providing an Oscar Pretorius special TV channel to MultiChoice's DStv pay-TV platform which will run for the duration of the court trial.

On Sunday Carte Blanche will devote the hour to a special report on Oscar Pistorius in which leading crime scene experts will reveal "startling findings" according to the pay-TV broadcaster's weekly investigative magazine show.

Sophia Phirippides is the producer of the hour long Carte Blanche special, with Amalia Christoforou as journalist and Subniv Babuta as presenter.
