Part 3
Series 1 Episode 3 of 4

When a judge is assigned to the Oscar Pistorius trial, the world watches closely. In this case, a judge – and not a jury – decide the defendant’s fate. The judge, Thokozile Masipa, is a highly respected scholar who grew up in the Soweto Township as a child of Apartheid. Despite the dignity with which she attempts to conduct the trial, no-one can stop it from becoming a televised tabloid circus.

Early news focuses on the holes in the testimonies of witnesses who claim to have heard the gun shots and screams. But as new evidence emerges, those close to Pistorius question his maturity and temper. His singular and at times lonely existence emerges, along with details of his romantic relationships. The trial lays bare his relationship with Reeva Steenkamp, with stormy texts revealing dramatic ups and downs, dictated by Pistorius’s temper.
