Louis Theroux's witty and non-judgemental approach to documentary-making has earned him a reputation of making some of the most entertaining films of recent times. Whether he's immersing himself in strange subcultures or moving in with eccentric celebrities, he uses his good manners and gentle humour to put his subjects at their ease, and in the process succeeds in getting them to open up and reveal so much more of themselves than they ever intended.
The films included in this collection are taken from the following series:
Louis travels the world exploring off-beat subcultures. From male porn performers in Los Angeles and white separatists in South Africa to mail order brides in Thailand and gangsta rappers in the American South, he gets under the skin of his subjects to show the human side of weirdness.
When Louis Met...
Louis gets intimate with some of Britain's most intriguing and most eccentric celebrities - Jimmy Savile, Ann Widdecombe, Chris Eubank, Paul Daniels and Debbie McGee, the Hamiltons - immersing himself in his subjects' lives with sometimes jaw-dropping results.
In two special films, Louis returns to America to investigate the Neo-Nazi movement in California and the nation's biggest legal brothel in Reno, Nevada.
