Max Clifford has long been one of the UK’s most intriguing characters. The PR guru was paid huge amounts of money to represent some of the countries biggest stars, and gained a reputation as somebody with the power to decide what gets in a newspaper and what doesn’t. In this 2002 episode of ‘When Louis Met….’ we get a glimpse into the inner-workings of his business and an insight into some of the power that he yielded.
Clifford has since been convicted of serious historic sex offences and is serving a long sentence in prison, some footage from this documentary was used as prosecution evidence in his trial. It is perhaps notable that Theroux also produced an episode which followed Jimmy Saville (watch: When Louis Met…. Jimmy).
