Reeva Steenkamp reality show screened in South Africa

A television channel in South Africa has defended its decision to air a reality show featuring Reeva Steenkamp, the girlfriend of Oscar Pistorius - who is accused of murdering her on Valentine's day, a charge he denies.

Tropika Island of Treasure was pre-recorded in Jamaica, and broadcast in South Africa on Saturday evening.

The producer of the SABC show, Samantha Moon, told the BBC the decision was taken after consulting the family.

On Saturday, Oscar Pistorius's uncle said the Paralympic champion is "numb with shock, as well as grief" at his girlfriend's death.
