Louis Th­er­oux: Dark

Daily Mail Weekend Magazine - - 8 OCTOBER SUNDAY -

States

9PM, BBC2

Louis Th­er­oux is back to im­merse him­self in the dark heart of Amer­ica, and live among the dis­il­lu­sioned, the dis­pos­sessed and the dis­ap­peared. He be­gins in Hunt­ing­ton, West Vir­ginia, an area com­monly known as Heroin Town, where the lo­cal pop­u­la­tion have traded their ad­dic­tion to pre­scrip­tion pills for some­thing much more dan­ger­ous. It’s an as­ton­ish­ing, and de­press­ing, in­ves­ti­ga­tion into a side of Amer­i­can life we rarely see. Next week’s episode prom­ises to be equally bleak, as Louis spends time with sex work­ers in Hous­ton, Texas.
