British documentary filmmaker Louis Theroux has worked with the BBC to curate a series of inspirational documentaries for iPlayer.
Named Louis Theroux: Docs That Made Me, the series will feature films spanning 40 years, all of which have had a profound effect on Theroux’s personal and professional life.
“It is an absolute privilege to be able to be part of sharing these wonderful, powerful documentaries. Each of them had an impact on me in a different way,” he said. “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, its most strange and therefore its most human. I hope BBC iPlayer viewers enjoy them as much as I have.”
Here’s the full list of documentaries in the series, all of which are available to watch on iPlayer now:
- Inside Story: Mini (1975)
- Fourteen Days In May (1987)
- Storyville: Philip And His Seven Wives (2006)
