By far the cheapest I have ever seen this set - a brilliant price for 4 disks of some of Louis's best work. Next cheapest is 8.49 at Amazon. You get a good selection including celebrity docs, one off specials, episodes from his 'Weird Weekends' series and there is even the bonus of some of Louis's early American TV appearences. Great selection on 4 disks.

The award winning series, Louis Theroux's Weird Weekends, delves into the strange lives of some of America's most colourful and controversial characters. No subject is overlooked as Louis meets members of the swastika worshipping white supremacists, middle aged swingers and politely asks porn stars "Is being a porn star really the dream job for any man?"
Louis' unique and relaxed interview style offers the opportunity to get up close and personal with his interviewees, revealing fascinating eccentricities never seen before.
When Louis Met, introduces us to the private lives of disgraced MP Neil Hamilton and his wife Christine, while cigar smoking, tracksuit wearing and self-proclaimed legend Jimmy Saville talks about the death of his mother - his beloved Duchess, his charity work and cruise work. Louis also interviews the eccentric Chris Eubank, subtly unveiling his insecurities and his new life as a celebrity following his retirement for boxing.
In Louis And The Nazis he travels to California to get under the skin of the American neo-Nazi movement and investigates whether they are dangerous political extremists or simply delusional? In Louis And The Brothel, he takes a six-week sojourn at America's biggest legal brothel - "The Wild Horse Ranch" in Reno, Nevada, meeting the girls and the punters, including a well-hung cowboy and a disabled widow.
The Louis Theroux Collection is packed full of hilarious observations and quick-witted banter as Louis cleverly invites his interviewee's to reveal their inner most quirks and traits, giving his audience a unique insight into the person behind the persona.
A must-have purchase for fans, this four-disc box set also includes never previously released excerpts of Louis' reports on Michael Moore's TV Nation featuring early encounters with the Ku Klux Clan, Millennialist religious leaders and evangelical policemen in the United States."
