This is a BBC2 podcast teaser for their program "The Most Hated Family in America."
"God is your enemy." "You will eat your babies." "God hates fags." These are just a few of the extremist views held by the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas. Louis Theroux spent three weeks in their company, locking horns with its leaders and talking to the younger members of the family to find out if there's any chance of them escaping the influence of their elders.
The whole program has actually shown up on youtube. The first part is here (the rest are linked off of it):
