Louis Theroux: By Rea­son of Insanity

BBC2, 9PM

Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Television -

In the sec­ond of his two-part strand, the epony­mous re­porter meets more NGRI (Not guilty by rea­son of Insanity) pa­tients in Cincin­nati, Ohio who have been de­tained for treat­ment rather than pun­ish­ment. “This week I’d be go­ing deeper in­side the foren­sic world, get­ting to know pa­tients whose per­son­al­i­ties are so in­ter­twined with their ill­ness, it makes them more dif­fi­cult to treat,” ex­plains Louis. “I’d be meet­ing clin­i­cians grap­pling with the grey area be­tween crim­i­nal ac­tions and med­i­cal symptoms”.
