One Click from Capture (BBC Panorama)

Watch The Broadcast:

How an online experiment by Panorama led to the arrest and conviction of a paedophile. One Click from Capture: BBC One 8.30pm Monday 26 May.
How safe are our children online?
A Panorama investigation earlier this year showed how paedophiles were using the internet to groom unsuspecting youngsters for sex.
'One Click from Danger' showed how social networking sites like MySpace, Facebook and Bebo were being targeted by paedophiles.
Two teenagers Olivia and Ellie told how after posting profiles on one site, a character claiming to be a 26-year-old woman wanting to be their friend turned out to be a 55-year-old predatory paedophile.
He tried to meet up with them on a school trip to the Tate Modern.
Sexual predators
Panorama also carried out its own experiment.
One of our researchers went online as a fictional 14-year-old schoolgirl called Jane.
Sexual predators soon sought her out.
One in particular was so disturbing the police took over the case.
In 'One Click from Capture' we catch up with Olivia and Ellie who are now making a video to warn parents and kids of the potential risks of the internet based on their own experience
