Law and Disorder in Lagos
Louis visits Lagos, a place where it’s not always the police who hold the power but also gangs of young men known as Area Boys. Louis spends time with the gangs as they patrol their turfs, clash with local rivals and keep the peace in a brutal and haphazard fashion. Lagos is a world in which the forces of law and of disorder are not always readily distinguishable and nothing is quite what it seems.
America’s Medicated Kids
Louis travels to America and meets parents turning to psychoactive medication to help them cope with problem children. Louis travels to one of America’s leading children’s psychiatric treatment centres to get to know the controversially diagnosed children and try to understand what drives parents to put their kids on drugs.
The Ultra Zionists

He discovers a people who consider it their religious and political obligation to populate some of the most sensitive, disputed and religiously significant areas of the West Bank, often resulting in violent clashes.
Miami Mega-Jail Parts 1&2

Return to the most hated family
Louis returns to the Westboro Baptist Church, spending time with the Phelps family as they controversially picket and antagonise communities with offensive slogans and anti-gay placards. However, there are signs of disarray in the Phelps clan when a series of defections by family members shakes up the church.
