This thought-provoking documentary sets out to discover why legislation to protect children from sexual abuse has failed, and explores radical and controversial alternatives. It contains testimonies of survivors of sexual abuse, and that of a self-confessed paedophile who speaks out unpixelated. He is adamant he has never interfered with a child and asks for help to manage his dangerous sexuality.
The film was debated in the House of Commons and nominated for a Royal Television Society Award (best documentary)
"a calm and sensible film"
