SA screening times of Oprah-Armstrong show

Will be broadcast over two nights

Oprah Winfrey’s exclusive interview with Lance Armstrong will air in South Africa over two episodes, Discovery Networks said in a statement.

It will be broascast on Friday, January 18 at 7.30pm and on Saturday, January 19 at 7.30pm on TLC channel (DStv 172 and Top TV 453).

Armstrong will address the alleged doping scandal, years of accusations of cheating and charges of lying about the use of performance-enhancing drugs throughout his cycling career. 

The seven-time Tour de France winner was stripped of his titles and dropped from millions of dollars in endorsement deals after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency released an extensive report accusing the renowned cyclist of doping throughout his career. Armstrong was also given a lifetime ban on competing professionally. Late last year, Armstrong resigned as chairman of the foundation he created, Livestrong, which has raised hundreds of millions of dollars in the fight against cancer.
