Saving the children, this week on ABC’s Foreign Correspondent

In the dead of night in Manila, police officers track down criminals responsible for delivering online child abuse to a growing number of Australian customers.

This scene has played out dozens of times across the Philippines as cases hit unprecedented levels.

The demand for live streaming child sexual abuse is so high in Australia that AFP officers are now based permanently in the Philippines working with an international task force investigating this distressing cyber-crime.

On Foreign Correspondent reporter Stephanie March has been given exclusive access to the Filipino police and the international task force as they hunt down the abusers and rescue the children. Parents are often involved in arranging the abuse and in a frank and confronting prison cell exchange Stephanie interviews a mother accused of facilitating the abuse of her own child for money.
