Louis Theroux: Surviving America's Most Hated Family

Thirteen years since first encountering one of America’s most notorious hate groups, Louis Theroux returns to Kansas to spend time with the Westboro Baptist Church - a hugely-controversial Christian ministry that for years has picketed at military funerals and other high-profile events with deliberately provocative and homophobic placards. In 2006 and again in 2011, Louis uncovered a world of indoctrination masterminded by church-founder and figurehead Pastor Fred Phelps. But with his death in 2014, and some high-profile family defections, the church has experienced a significant change that has threatened to tear apart what was once a tight-knit family community.
