Analysis of Louis Theroux for Radio Times

November 2018

My analysis of Louis Theroux’s interview style appeared in the Radio Times, as he launched a new series.

The article looked to understand how Theroux managed to get to the heart of his interviewees, and if there was something special Theroux does – verbally and not so – that propels his subjects to reveal so much about themselves?

I observe that Louis emits very little non-verbal leakage. He’s very controlled and lets his subjects talk without judgement. It’s amazing.
