BBC iPlayer has just added 70 Louis Theroux documentaries, just in time for an autumn binge watch.

Some of Louis' documentaries are already available on Netflix, however, the new additions to iPlayer means that you can watch them free of charge, as long as you have a TV licence.

Of course, there are loads to choose from, which could make it hard to pick one, but we've broke them all down for you so you can start with your favourite.

The Law and Disorder series, from 2008, follows local gangs and paramilitary task force in Lagos, Nigeria, and investigates the high crime rates in Philadelphia, USA, from the perspective of the police and locals.

Weird Weekends spanned from 1998 to 2001 and gives viewers glimpses into the worlds of individuals and groups that they would not normally come into contact with.

In Self Fulfilment, Louis meets a Las Vegas hypnotist, and in Indian Guru, he meets westerners who have travelled to India for enlightenment.

Also in the series are Whites, Body Building, Looking For Love and Gangster Rap.

Another addition to iPlayer is the Louis Meets series, which shows the filmmaker meeting famous faces such as Anne Widdecombe and Chris Eubank.

Louis And The Nazis and Louis And The Brothel speak for themselves, but were both aired in 2003.

After failing to secure a deal to create a Michael Jackson documentary, Louis, Martin and Michael follows the journalist as he tries desperately to secure an interview with The King of Pop.

In the Miami Mega Jail series, Louis spends time in 'Main Jail' - one of the most notorious sections of the Miami jail system.


The Extreme Love series looked at how love comes out on top when conditions such as autism and dementia are involved and was aired in 2012.

The LA Stories series puts LA under the microscope and in Louis own words is 'immersive examinations of life at its most raw and emotional'.

One of Louis' most recent documentaries, Dark States, visits three American cities and examines a uniquely devastating human crisis in each: heroin addiction, sex trafficking and murder.

It sounds like we have just enough Louis to binge watch our way through the winter.
