South Africans will also get a chance to watch Oscar Pistorius: The Interview after M-Net secured the rights to air the British documentary.

The pay channel will screen the doccie directly after its world premiere this Friday.

This is the murder convict’s first interview since he killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day in 2013.

The Carte Blanche special, which will include a panel discussion, will start at 11pm.

“We will have the Oscar Pistorius interview on our screens literally as the end credits are rolling on ITV,” says Jan du Plessis, Director: M-Net Channels.

Peabody award-winning investigative journalist Mark Williams-Thomas met up with the Blade Runner at his uncle Arnold Pistorius’ home in Waterkloof, Pretoria, where he has been under house arrest, to hear his side of the story, again.
