Oprah Winfrey has today announced she will expand the “Oprah Winfrey and Lance Armstrong: A Worldwide Exclusive” to a two-part special after a two and half hour interview with Armstrong which took place at his home in Austin, Texas on Tuesday.

This two-part special will be broadcast via direct simulcast across Discovery Channel and Animal Planet. The first part of the interview will be 90 minutes in duration and airs on Friday, January 18 at 3pm (NZDT) and the second is 60 minutes in duration and airs on Saturday, January 19 a 3pm (NZDT).

In this two-part special Oprah Winfrey will speak exclusively with Lance Armstrong in his first no-holds-barred interview, “Oprah Winfrey and Lance Armstrong: A Worldwide Exclusive.” 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.

In the interview, Winfrey speaks with Armstrong at his home in Austin, Texas, in the only interview since 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 given a lifetime ban from 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.

Watch the world premiere of “Oprah Winfrey and Lance Armstrong: A Worldwide Exclusive” part one on Friday, January 18 at 3pm (NZDT) and part two on Saturday, January 19 at 3pm (NZDT), on Discovery Channel (Channel 070) and Animal Planet (Channel 075).
