(NEW YORK) — During his infamous 1995 murder trial, O.J. Simpson invoked his right against self-incrimination and did not testify.
Though he was found not guilty in the slayings of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, he lost a wrongful death suit brought against him by their families in 1997.
For the civil case, Simpson went under oath in a pre-trial deposition. Attorney Daniel Petrocelli, representing Goldman’s father, questioned Simpson for 13 days about his alleged role in the slayings.
Forgotten for over two decades, the video tapes of the deposition have been stored under lock and key.
On Friday, ABC News’ 20/20 will give viewers a first look at the long-lost videos, as well as other exclusive material and interviews, which will be featured in the A&E documentary, O.J. Speaks: The Hidden Tapes, which premieres Oct. 1 at 9 p.m. ET., and the LMN documentary The Secret Tapes of the O.J. Case: The Untold Story, which premieres Sept. 30 at 8 p.m. ET. (Both A&E and LMN are partly owned by ABC News’ parent company, Disney.)
Get a first look at the deposition tapes, and tune in for the full story on ABC News’ 20/20 Friday at 10 p.m. ET.
