[Contains explicit content] Most of us assume the online underworld is flooded by images of child sexual abuse. Yet due to the hazards of investigating the Dark Web, it is very difficult to find independent research. So just how much child porn is there on the Dark Web? And what are the police doing to tackle it?
In this episode, Channel 4 News's former Technology Reporter, Geoff White, discovers a shocking truth — that many paedophiles don't need the dark web. They're active in a much more open way.
Where does Ep. 8: The Child Porn Paradox (The Dark Web) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
In a world of fake news and hysteria, it is good to find a balanced, evidence-based gripping analysis of the Dark Web. The series visits this world, available to anyone but harmful and dangerous to many, whose existence is only now being appreciated. Episode 8 considers child pornography and produces some very worrying insights into not just the Dark Web but in the way that Facebook and similar services are being used to harm children.
I have listened to many documentary podcasts - this series is undoubtedly one of the best ever with very high ITN production values, analysis and storytelling at its best.
What did you like best about this story?
This builds on the earlier episodes
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
This is a book to enjoy over a series of days rather than listening to at one sitting. It deserves revisiting again and again
Any additional comments?
I would be wonderful if the transcript of this audio programme were made available too
