    Louis Theroux and the Nazis

    A lot of people would have seen this already, but for those who haven't, it's definitely worth a look. I admire Theroux for the straightforward way that he has documented sheer and blatant racism.

    Part 1
    Part 2
    Part 3

    Incredible.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    He's quite simply a brilliant journalist. I watched his initial show and continue to watch his series which started last week.

    He's brave and asked exactly the right (or wrong from the interviewed perspective) question that he has people on the back foot all the time without ever being aggressive.

    One of my favourite shows.

    Looks interesting, think you've got the wrong link for Part 1 though.

    He's a brilliant journalist, someone who is prepared to ask probing, controversial and occasionally embarassing questions. The documentary about the Nazis was the most eye-opening for me. Last night's show about gambling in Vegas was interesting, but probably less controversial than the others.

    He always seems so scared and timid, and yet I respect him a lot for his courage.

    Just got to the part with the two 11 year old girls. Remember reading something about them before (think it might've been from CW in fact), but seeing that is just jaw-dropping.

    I think it was first shown in December 2004- it's scary as hell and very chilling.

    He is a very good journalist, he has a knack of revealing things without seeming to reveal them, asking probing questions without seeming to probe, so that the people he's interviewing get lulled into a false sense of security. It was the same last night in his Vegas film.

    Find him a little emotive in his reactions to the nazi guy from the little bit I've seen so far, but I guess that's understandable.

    Very interesting approach anyway.

    Just finished watching the whole thing. Absolutely incredible documentary. Obviously I and everyone else know that these things exist but to see such racism and bigotry with my own eyes is startling. Superb job by Louis Theroux, seems a real class act. Thanks for the link Camps.
