IT WAS a crime that shocked the world when Olympic hero Oscar Pistorius shot and killed his girlfriend on Valentine’s Day

Once dubbed the ‘blade runner’, a new BBC documentary is set to watch what happened on that fateful night, which ended in the death of Reeva Steenkamp

It will then air on BBC Two at a later date which has not yet been confirmed

The Trials Of Oscar Pistorius tells the story of the Blade Runner – who rose from the status of an international hero, who inspired millions of people with his determination and dedication, to be accused of murder when he killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp

The series includes interviews with more than a dozen of the closest characters in the story

The film chronicles the fall of Pistorius after killing his girlfriend Reeva in the wee hours of February 14, 2013, at 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 returns to the very beginning of the future Paralympic star’s life

Documentary chronicles his unlikely rise from a young boy with his two undeveloped legs amputated as a toddler to an overnight teenage phenomenon at the 2004 Athens Paralympic Games

Shattering records and convention, Oscar then embarked on a quest to compete against non-disabled athletes at the Olympics

His struggle against international athletics officials continued for years before Pistorius finally won and competed in the London Olympics in 2012

Less than a year later, he found himself in a South African courtroom charged with the murder of his girlfriend

However, the BBC withdrew the ad from the broadcast after it was criticized for « portraying Pistorius as a victim »

The two-minute clip showed footage of the convicted murderer smiling, laughing and winning medals as he competed in the Paralympics

It contained footage of him as a child until he was convicted of murdering his girlfriend in their bathroom

The BBC later confirmed it had deleted the clip and said it was « aware of the upheaval it had caused »
