Louis Theroux: Docs That Made Me

Renowned documentarian Louis Theroux dived into the BBC Archives and selected his favourite documentaries. Each of them had an impact on Louis. They cover a range of styles - some vérité-driven, others told more through interview - but in all of them, you see life at its most raw, it's most strange and therefore it's most human..

In Louis Theroux: Docs That Made Me Louis explains why he chose the documentaries and how they have inspired his work. All the documentaries are available to watch on BBC iPlayer right now:

Philip and His Seven Wives (2006) 
Life and Death Row: Truth (2016) 
Exposed: Magicians, Psychics and Frauds (2014) 
Between Life and Death (2010) Inside Story: Mini (1975) 
Fourteen Days In May (1987) 
Also in the collection - Rain in My Heart (2006)
