Louis Theroux is definitely one of my favourite broadcasters.  His documentaries are very good at providing insight into the lives of people on the fringes of society, outside of so called ‘normal life’ .  Coincidentally as well, Louis Theroux used to live in Harlesden, which is where i live at the moment.

I spotted this issue back in September 2014, but amazingly it is still there. Louis Theroux has disallowed Google!
