Podcast series about child sexual abuse material online on behalf of the Internet Watch Foundation.
A new six-part podcast series, Pixels From a Crime Scene, takes a stark look at the global scale of child sexual abuse material online and the work of the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) and its partners. The IWF plays a vital role in safeguarding vulnerable young children by removing this explicit and illegal content.
Commissioned by the IWF and produced by Cambridge Podcasts, the series hears the real stories of victims of child sexual abuse online as well as from those who perpetrated it. It also hears from police, government and asks if the tech industry (including Facebook, Google, Microsoft, BT and TalkTalk) is doing enough to stop it.
The series offers a disturbing global snapshot of child sexual abuse online, from India and the Democratic Republic of Congo to the United States and The Netherlands, exploring the traffic in child sexual abuse content on the dark web and the efforts of law enforcement agencies and tech companies to disrupt paedophile communities. The series debates the response of the tech companies to safeguard young children and whether privacy is being prioritised over protection, such as in Facebook’s plan to encrypt its Messenger service. Child protection experts are all agreed that this will allow abusive material to be shared without trace.
