In 2007   Louis Theroux spent a weekend in Las Vegas as part of  a television series for the BBC. Louis Theroux, son of travel writer and novelist Paul Theroux, is known for bringing his low-key and somewhat intellectual style to unusual and  exotic situations and topics.

The six links below will take you to to You Tube for the video, note there are a few hiccups at the start of the first video, but then its smooth sailing.

The six videos document Louis’s interaction with some of the top gamblers at the Las Vegas Hilton. It is interesting to see host interaction with high-rollers and as Louis frequently points out, never forget who pays the host’s salary.
