A new four-part documentary on ESPN will chronicle the rise and downfall of the former athlete Oscar Pistorius.

Part of ESPN's award-winning 30 for 30 series, The Life and Trials of Oscar Pistorius will premiere weekly from Thursday 19 November at 20:00 on ESPN (DStv 218) with repeats each Sunday at 20:00 from 22 November.

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

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