Personal memoires by Louis Theroux
Twenty-five years after his first tv-appearance, Gotta Get Through This (Geen taboe voor Theroux entitled in Dutch, by Ambo | Anthos) is published. Louis Theroux takes the reader on a journey through his tv-career, that started working with Michael Moore’s TV Nation, and along the many remarkable and striking encounters he had though the years. He describes his experiences with extreme subcultures and militias in the US, gangs in Johannesburg and with heavy drinkers in London. He also writes about his interviews with famous Brits such as TV-host Jimmy Saville, who he admired but following disclosures about Savilles past, was forced to see in a different light. Louis Theroux’ documentaries are broadcast in Holland on NPO3 by VPRO.
