In this daring documentary, Stacey Dooley investigates bounty hunters in the USA as they hunt down fugitives who have skipped bail, bringing them back to face justice. On the outskirts of Denver Colorado, Stacey immerses herself in the world of a group of bounty hunters, led by husband and wife duo Scott and Lydia Gribble.
They hunt down fugitives every day, locking up as many as eleven bail-dodgers a week. Stacey sees them force their way into properties, interrogate accomplices and taser and handcuff defendants who’ve gone on the run, so they can capture the fugitives and get paid for it.
In this emotional programme, Stacey Dooley travels to Kurdish-controlled northern Syria to visit the holding camps and meet western women who left their countries to join the so-called Islamic State. Some of the women are still fervent IS supporters, while others say they just want to come home and face whatever consequences the courts decide.
For now, the Kurds who are in control of this part of Syria are also in control of these women and children. They are still fighting Russia and Assad’s forces to the south and say the western powers should not expect the Kurds to be prisoners on their behalf indefinitely.
Set amongst the vibrant and glamourous international community of the eponymous sun-drenched Spanish island, The Mallorca Files centres around Detective Miranda Blake (Elen Rhys) - an introvert who is used to living by the rules - and her German counterpart Max Winter (Julian Looman), whose approach to policing is based on gut-instinct, with little interest in process.
Their dynamic - sometimes in sync, but mostly not - sets the rich humour and playful tone of the series, which marks a welcome return to the police caper.
At a time of increased scrutiny about what constitutes sexual assault, award-winning documentary-maker Louis Theroux heads to American college campuses and comes face-to-face with students whose universities have found them responsible for sexual assault.
In recent years, US colleges have been urged to enforce a stricter code of sexual conduct amongst students, employing specialist administrators to carry out investigations into alleged misdemeanours, with those found responsible facing permanent exclusion. For the victims of sexual assault these new processes, which require less stringent levels of proof than criminal cases, have allowed accusations that might have never been heard in a court of law to be vindicated. But alleged perpetrators believe the attempt to be more vigilant about rape and assault has turned into an overreaction that tramples on due process, and harms innocent people.
Louis Theroux revisits one of his most notorious subjects in Surviving America’s Most Hated Family.
Thirteen years since first encountering one of America’s most notorious hate groups, award-winning film-maker Louis Theroux makes a long-anticipated return to Kansas to spend time with the Westboro Baptist Church - a hugely controversial Christian ministry that for years has picketed at military funerals and other high-profile events with deliberately provocative and homophobic placards.
The award-winning documentary maker embeds himself in three psychiatric mother and baby units in the UK.
Here women with mental health issues are kept with their babies rather than being separated. With erratic and self-harming behaviour common, the professionals are constantly having to judge whether keeping them together is in anyone's best interest.
The premise is that the mother and baby bond is so strong that separation would be harmful. But when does the mother's behaviour become detrimental to her own and her child's well-being?
In this UK-based investigation, award-winning filmmaker Louis Theroux interviews women legally providing sexual services in exchange for money.
He sees how they use technology to share photos, make bookings and vet potential clients - making the exchange more accessible and, some argue, safer than the illegal alternatives.
Many still believe selling sex is exploitative and damaging. Others feel it can be a valid, empowering choice. In this film, Louis explores whether selling sex can ever be a healthy way to make money.
