BBC journalist Louis Theroux is a fearless observer of human nature. He takes a keen interest in documenting human foibles and contradictions, especially the weird and wonderful world of America and Americans. Those on the margins of society - extremist groups, gangsta rappers, porn stars and survivalist nuts - receive special attention. Louis wants to know, what really makes these people tick?
