In the final part of Louis Theroux: Miami Mega Jail, Louis goes deeper into the jail system, meeting an alleged triple murderer facing a possible death sentence. Louis also follows a group of 40 younger inmates who have escaped prison by pleading guilty and agreeing to attend a four-month military-style bootcamp.
Tonight, it is the defence's turn to call forth their witnesses. First, it's expert Henry Lee, who demonstrates, paradoxically, that 'there's too much blood for a murder', and Farus Bandak who, with the help of a graphic simulation, demonstrates the way in which Kathleen could have fallen to self-inflict her head wounds.
I Am Innocent tell stories of those who were convicted of crimes, but maintained their innocence throughout. Take a look at some of New Zealand's most famous cases of people being wrongly convicted of heinous crimes.
Lagos is one of the fastest growing cities in the world. Louis Theroux explores a city changing so rapidly that formal structures of law and order can't really keep pace with its population. In this film, Louis spends time with local youths (who call themselves Area Boys) who patrol the streets of Lagos, charging or extorting money from drivers and local businesses, and with KAI (Kick Against Indiscipline), a paramilitary state government group that routinely storms different districts of the city, bulldozing whole precincts and arresting hundreds if they can detect any violation of the state's environmental laws. At the apex of Area Boy life is MC, a former street youth who has become a friend of the most powerful men in the city. He is rich and powerful. He has guns, drives flash cars, lives in an enormous house with his own private mosque, and boasts a collection of European shoes that competes with that of Imelda Marcos. He is at the head of an organisation of street youths who bring him thousands of Naira generated from the seemingly random taxes they impose on the streets. As well as MC, Louis spends time with Area Boys lower down the hierarchy - including a local woman leader called Tawa and the gangs of youths who patrol the streets imposing their own version of order. With KAI, Louis joins a demolition team as it smashes through a row of shops that have been judged illegal. He talks to KAI officers as they marshal their assault as well as local businessmen who can only watch as their businesses are crushed before their eyes. Louis wrestles with life in a world that seems at times utterly lawless and corrupt, and other times strangely orderly and formal.
Tonight, host Veronica Milsom and her fleet of cabbie comedians continue to take the pulse of the nation. In an irreverent ride around town with everyday punters, the cabbie comedians are agent provocateurs in search of the 'truth'. The trouble is, 'truth' comes in many flavours and when you never know who might jump in the back seat, the only thing certain is a journey full of surprises.
An award-winning series that follows a criminal case from the beginning, right through to the trial and final verdict. A few months after the death of Kathleen, her daughter Caitlin changes her mind and publicly accuses her stepfather Michael of murder. Her sudden turnabout can be explained by the discovery of a hidden side to Michael's life: the police have found evidence of unorthodox sexual practices in Michael's computer.
Roma Gypsies are Europe's largest and arguably most persecuted ethnic minority, and it's estimated 250,000 now live in Britain.With political pressure to curb immigration at an all-time high, this is a community under the spotlight. But what does it mean to be a Roma Gypsy? With no state of their own, no government and no written history, the most traditional Roma Gypsies have kept their culture alive by passing down age-old customs from father to son and from mother to daughter.
A manhunt is underway after the seemingly motiveless killing of a 19-year-old boy in Bristol. Detectives comb the city in search of their suspect, a black-hooded figure captured on CCTV feeling the crime scene.
In the follow up to Agony Uncles, Agony Aunts and The Agony of Life, Australia's funniest and brightest discuss being caught in the crossfire of modern manners. In the first episode our team look at the manners of work. The workplace is a hotbed of procedure and politics. Here the Aunts and Uncles guide you through the first day of a new job, explain the do's and don'ts of the office fridge, how you should behave in a lift and what you should and shouldn't wear to the office.
Most travel starts with walking. Is it polite to walk double and triple abreast? And should others have to move around you because you're busy looking at your smart phone? Then there's driving and drivers who go too fast, too slow, don't merge, don't allow others to merge, honk willfully and turn their music up at traffic lights. And when you're on a plane, should you recline your seat all the way back in economy and who really owns the armrest?
Prime suspect Luchiano Barnes is on the run and flown to New York. Detectives in Bristol circulate his details to the FBI, but by now he could be anywhere. Police now look closer to home as they target his mother and father.
A few months ago, a plot to kidnap a random from in Sydney and film their public beheading was foiled. It's difficult to oppose increased surveillance powers when you think that it could have been the decapitated body of someone you love lying in the street. When you look at it this way, the proposed metadata laws seem quite reasonable. But intelligence agencies in Australia and around the world have a disturbing habit of overstepping the bounds. It's a slippery slope and the hunt for terrorists can easily become the hunt for whistleblowers or anyone else who offends the government of the day.
Popular wisdom used to be that people who 'had work done' were desperate and sad, with many Australians eschewing cosmetic surgery lest they ended up looking like frightened clowns in a wind tunnel. But that opinion has been lasered away with Australians now spending $850 million-a-year on cosmetic surgery and that figure growing at 25 per cent per annum.
The home is as tough as any office and the biggest troublemakers are the freeloaders who don't buy food or pay rent. Then there are the noisy, the germ freaks, the controlling, and the lazy sods who leave a little bit of milk in the carton so they don't have to throw it out, or a square of toilet paper on the toilet roll so replacing it is someone else's job.
The Aunts and Uncles discuss the merit of emoticons, and tell us whether abbreviations like 'thx', 'yrs' and 'omg' are appropriate or should we just write the words out in full? What of trolls? Do you ignore or respond? And if you were to respond, what is a proportional response?
Louis Theroux spent a summer living with the community of the Westboro Baptist Church, famed for their offensive ministry. Now Louis returns to find the family more hateful than ever. When Louis first met the Phelps, he accompanied the family as they travelled the country holding signs such as "God Hates Fags" and "Soldiers Die God Laughs" America hated them and they revelled in their notoriety. Now Louis returns to find a very different community. More like a cult than ever before, they are convinced the world is about to end and are making evermore outrageous gestures such as burning the Koran. Louis is accepted back into the family, but he finds them more combative than before. They see him as part of the prophecy; the 'mocker and scoffer' sent by God to chide his elect. As the family's behaviour becomes even more extreme, some of the younger members of the Church have fallen away. Louis catches up with those who made the decision to leave the family, knowing that in doing so, they will never see their parents again. Although Louis finds the Phelps family more vengeful, more hateful and more controversial than ever, he also finds a family heading towards uncertain times, losing its members as it binds its youngest ever more tightly.

Feminism has been a thing since 1894, yet some men still don't know the difference between flirtation and sexual harassment. In fact, a number of them continue to be concerned that by condemning sexual harassment, we will somehow accidentally sweep up well-meaning compliments and flirting as well. But women say there's no need to panic and that women are still happy to flirt and be told they look nice, but they shouldn't be treated like sex objects or have to put up with catcalls from building sites. Sounds fair.
With exclusive access to several facilities across the US, this documentary explores the controversial issue of the aggressive behavioural modification and confrontational methods youth rehabilitation camps in America employ.

When Bianca (Anita Hegh) is forced to shoot Brett Bonar (Andrew Henry), Janets (Marta Dusseldorp) best lead to the firearms, and finding Ashs killer, disappears.
Meanwhile, Bahman (Simon Elrahi) and Sam Nobakht (Rahel Romahn) are intercepted trying to leave the country with $30,000 in U.S. currency. They say they were returning to Iran to pay officials to keep Sam out of the military, an obligation, with ISIS pressing on the Iran-Iraq border, that could prove fatal. They say the money was for helping to import the container, but didnt know it held guns, and when they tried to pull out after Todds death, Brett shot up their house.
Bretts flat contains an arsenal of weapons and DNA results tie him to the murder of George Healy - meaning he knew Ashs killer.

Heather (Leah Purcell) discovers from Simons phone that he and Robbie Carter (Josef Ber) met on HookUp, a gay dating app. Is it all starting to fall into place?

We learn about the history and origins of the Priory back in Jerusalem in the 12th century, and its connections to the Knights Templar. We learn about its history down through the centuries, including its Grand Masters like Leonardo Da Vinci, Sir Isaac Newton, Sandro Botticelli and Jean Cocteau. We learn about the release of the infamous 'Dossiers Secrets' in the 1960s in the Paris National Library, as well the Order's then grand master, Pierre Plantard, agreeing to an interview with the BBC. We learn about the Order's structure today, as well as who its members currently are. We also learn about the 'irrefutable' evidence it is said to protect that challenges accepted church doctrine, as well as what it is and where it might be hidden. We learn where, and how, the Order operates today, and how it is still releasing information, and its connection to, and relationship with, the Freemasons.
Hitler and the key officers of the Nazi High Command were all members of three main secret societies which had a strong belief in the occult; the Vril Society, the Thule society and the Ahnenerbe. The Vril Society was based on a novel written in 1871 by Edward Bulwer-Lytton called The Power of the Coming Race which talks of a superior subterranean master race and the energy-form called "Vril" which powers UFO's from hidden bases beneath the arctic ice. It sounds crazy but Hitler, Himmler and other leading Nazis took it very seriously. The Thule Society was named after a mythical northern country from Greek legend which was the origins of the "Aryan Race", also thought to have been the mythical Atlantis. It had about 2000 members, insisting on intense loyalty and secrecy, as well pure white blood, "untainted" by any other race, or colour. This belief in the Aryan race and its connection to Atlantis led to the foundation of the Ahnenerbe by Heinrich Himmler to research the archaeological and racial heritage of the Aryan race. It conducted experiments and launched expeditions in an attempt to find the lost city of Atlantis, and prove that mythological Aryan populations had once ruled the world. Although the Vril and Thule societies, as well as the Ahnenerbe were officially disbanded at the end of World War ll, there are reports that they continued for many decades afterwards through surviving Nazi officers in Europe, America and South America. Today, it's believed that several Neo-Nazi groups made up of descendants of former German soldiers, politicians and new, younger recruits, keep the flame alive, with regular meetings, and the same beliefs.
Every Easter across France, Spain and much of Europe a secret "confrerie" or "brotherhood" marches in silence through the old medieval streets wearing dark, hooded robes, their faces and identities concealed. So who are they? They are members of a little known and extremely secretive Catholic religious society known as the "The Brotherhoods of the Blood". The organisation can trace its roots back to the middle ages when they were used as part of the bloody Inquisition across Europe. The passionately Roman Catholic groups used to help hunt down, torture and burn "heretics" across Europe, working with the local Dominican Inquisitors. They then marched the accused to their execution wearing the same robes as today. Today, the Brotherhood is a part time calling for its members, but when called to do so, they still work with the local Bishops and Cardinals to do the Catholic church's work across Europe, much of which is done behind closed doors. This includes investigations, recruitment, finances and enforcement of Rome's edicts and punishments.
The prosecution calls witness after witness to the stand, insisting on three points: the quantity of blood found beside the body, the wounds on Kathleen's head, and the iron poker as the murder weapon. But the witnesses falter during David Rudolf's clever cross-examination. In an obstinate contest of eloquence, Michael Peterson's lawyer unveils the incompetence and partiality of the witnesses.
