LOUIS TH­ER­OUX: AL­TERED STATES

STAR­RING: Louis Th­er­oux

WHO - - The List -

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.
