The Life and Trials of Oscar Pistorius

Channel: ESPN (DStv 218)
TX Time: 20h00
Genre: True Crime, Documentary Series, Sport

The Life and Trials of Oscar Pistorius

A story of the South African Paralympic sprinter and former international hero, who had inspired millions with his determination and dedication – and who was then suddenly at the centre of a murder investigation.

The circus that surrounded the tragic death of Reeva Steenkamp became just as much a story of the time as his initial rise to glory.

Featuring interviews with more than a dozen of the figures closest to the story, the film recounts Pistorius's fall from grace after killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in the wee hours of 14 February 2013 in his home in Pretoria, South Africa.

According to Pistorius, the event was a tragic accident, but his troubled past and questionable testimony cast doubt on his innocence.

As the saga unfolds, the story flashes back to the very beginning of the future Paralympic star's life, chronicling his improbable ascent from a young boy who had both his undeveloped legs amputated as a toddler to overnight teenage phenomenon at the 2004 Athens Paralympic Games.

Shattering records and convention, The Blade Runner, as he became known, then went on a quest to compete against able-bodied athletes at the Olympics.

His struggle against international track and field officials continued for years before Pistorius finally prevailed and competed at the London Olympics in 2012.

Less than a year later, he was in a South African courtroom, accused of murdering his girlfriend.

Power 6

Season 6 picks up with James "Ghost" St. Patrick seeking vengeance. His former drug partner and brother in arms must pay for the ultimate betrayal.

Rocked to his core by the perfidiousness and cruelties of those he once called his family, Ghost devotes himself to one notion: Success is the best revenge, with all intentions of getting both.

Ghost aims to get even with Tommy, get the Queens Child Project built to consecrate Raina's legacy, and finally achieve a thriving legitimate lifestyle with no criminal strings attached.

Ghost's need to wrest satisfaction and happiness from this world by any means necessary - is the most dangerous he's ever faced.

As the Feds grow closer to convicting him, Ghost must remain vigilant toward those wanting to take him down for his past criminal enterprises.

In the Season 6 premiere, "Murderers": Ghost seeks vengeance due to the ill will of Tommy Egan and Tasha vows to get even with Ghost for the murder of Terry Silver.
