The parents of Reeva Steenkamp, June and Barry Steenkamp, are set to open up in a recent and exclusive interview with Discovery Channel.

Pistorius is currently on trial, accused of premeditated murder after he shot and killed Reeva Steenkamp on Valentines Day last year.

'The Trial of Oscar Pistorius' is the renamed documentary of 'Pistorius On Trial: Nowhere to Run' which was broadcast in America earlier this month, Channel24, reports.

Barry Steenkamp, Reeva's father, has been unable to attend the trial as he suffered a minor stroke prior to the start of the trial.

"I've got my own feelings inside as to what happened, but what I do want to do, is to just to talk to him. I would like to have a chat to him, man to man. Guilty or not guilty, whatever it is. I would like to have a talk; that would help me a lot," Barry says.

June Steenkamp opens up about the loss of her daughter and laying eyes on Pistoruis.

"I think he [Oscar] has to see me, the mother, the person who gave birth to her, that he's taken that away," says June Steenkamp in the exclusive TV interview.

"That's what I want to see, that's why I want to look in his face and he must look in mine. He must see now that I am there for justice for Reeva, no matter what happened, and the truth, obviously, which we don't know we'll ever get. But I hope for that."

Discovery Channel (DStv 121) will be broadcasting the interview on Sunday 27 April at 21:00.
