The Oscar Pistorius criminal trial is a huge talking point across the globe and The Oscar Pistorius Trial: A Carte Blanche Channel has seen massive engagement on social media around the world.
The channel will continue to bring viewers thought-provoking documentaries, in-depth analysis of the trial and informed commentary from key personalities and experts in the legal, journalistic and particularly the social media fields,” says George Mazarakis, Channel Head for The Oscar Pistorius Trial: A Carte Blanche Channel.
The line-up for the two-day broadcast will remain the same. The Morning Show, a live show which starts at six every morning with regular live crossings to the High Court in Pretoria.
The show recaps on previous events in court and assesses what is expected to happen in court each day.
The live broadcast from the courtroom follows while the court is in session. After the court’s tea break, the live broadcast continues until lunch break when The Lunch Time Show takes over.
