Carte Blanche Panel To Dissect Oscar Pistorius ITV Interview

By Mimi Ucheagwu

Tonight (Friday, 24 June) at 9:55pm M-Net and M-Net City are bringing viewers Oscar Pistorius: The Interview. A Carte Blanche Special, featuring the former Paralympian’s first television interview since the tragic events of Valentine’s Day in 2013. But why did the Blade Runner decide to grant ITV this interview? Will this have an impact on his upcoming sentencing? And, how should one interpret the information he is sharing with Peabody award-winning investigative journalist Mark Williams-Thomas?

Carte Blanche has lined-up esteemed experts for the in-depth panel discussion which will follow the broadcast of the full ITV documentary. Former Zimbabwean High Court judge Chris Greenland, Advocate Mannie Witz and clinical psychologist Leonard Carr will share their opinions with Carte Blanche presenters John Webb and Bongani Bingwa. Webb has been following the trial from court since the very beginning and the panel guests often intrigued viewers with their comments on the Carte Blanche Oscar Pistorius DStv channel.

“The Carte Blanche panel discussion provides valuable context to the ITV interview and will leave viewers with plenty of food for thought,” says M-Net’s Head of Publicity, Lani Lombard. “The discussion will start directly after the doccie’s credits appear on screen, so be sure to stay tuned for it.”

Both the ITV interview Oscar Pistorius: The Interview and the Carte Blanche special will also be available on DStv Catch Up and will be broadcast on SuperSport throughout the weekend. The SuperSport screenings are as follows:
