October 2, 2016
In light of the unmasking of Jimmy Savile as a predatory sex offender, and 15 years on from the BBC documentary When Louis Met Jimmy, Louis Theroux sets out to understand how a man who was at the centre of British entertainment and charitable fundraising for decades was able to get away with a long litany of crimes. In this reflective 75-minute film, Louis talks to some of Savile's victims and to people who worked closely with him, and re-examines moments from the original film as well as footage that has never aired before on television.

Louis Theroux has an amazing ability to tell the stories of the people he chooses to focus on with depth and feeling. He is open and genuinely tries to understand and connect with all the people he meets. This makes for some great documentaries on various types of people.
