LOUIS THEROUX: ALTERED STATES
STARRING: Louis Theroux
The British documentary-maker’s latest series is a three-part look at birth, death and love in modern America. In this week’s first episode, Theroux examines adoption in California, by talking to people who have gone through and are hoping to go through the process – from both sides of the transaction. And it is a transaction, with huge sums involved. Eye-opening and moving. (Starts Thurs., Dec. 6 at 8.30pm; BBC Knowledge)
Subsequent episodes deal with polyamory and euthanasia.
