A young man closes his laptop. He checks his phone. He ties his trainers. He’s on his way out to meet some mates. He is also a sexual predator.
He is part of a “new generation” of online abusers, with police warning that more and more 18 to 25 year-old men in the UK are viewing child abuse online and even “directing” the abuse of children.
In this episode of Pixels from a Crime Scene, host Angela Young meets Susie Hargreaves OBE, Chief Executive of the IWF, Fred Langford, the IWF’s Deputy Chief Executive and Chief Technical Officer, Simon Bailey, the National Police Chief Councils’ (NPCC) lead on child protection, and John Carr OBE, Internet Safety and Security Consultant.
She looks at the realities facing those leading the fight against the criminals who view, share and even trade child sexual abuse imagery online, and confronts us with some uncomfortable truths about the changing face of online abusers.

The Ron Burgundy Podcast
Will Ferrell reprises his role as Ron Burgundy in his brand new Ron Burgundy Podcast! Each episode has a different theme in which Ron engages in conversation with another notable person on the topic at hand. In true Ron Burgundy fashion, these conversations have a tendency to go off the rails, and we find out things about people we never knew we wanted to know. In season 2, Ron considers a run for President, continues to perform music, and blacks out at work. In Season 1, Ron addressed important issues like bullying and the mind-expanding nature of meditation, and attempted to ultimately answer the question “seriously, what is a podcast?”
This is what the news should sound like. The biggest stories of our time, told by the best journalists in the world. Hosted by Michael Barbaro. Twenty minutes a day, five days a week, ready by 6 a.m.
