I watched this - sadly didn't tell me anything I didn't already know but good that it will help others face facts and become more aware.

The Truth About Child Sex Abuse

Professor Tanya Byron and Tazeen Ahmad investigate the shocking findings of the most detailed study of child sexual abuse ever conducted in the UK.

As the Children's Commissioner releases the results of the most comprehensive study of child sexual abuse ever conducted in the UK, Professor Tanya Byron and Tazeen Ahmad investigate its shocking findings. How much do we really understand about this horrific crime? How common is child sex abuse and how much remains hidden? Who are the offenders and how many paedophiles are there in a typical town? They uncover the devastating reality behind the statistics, meeting the young victims, and the offenders themselves, to lay bare the truth about child sex abuse.

I wanted to see more about the signs to look out for in your child but this seemed missing apart from the bit about self harm at the end. Or did I miss something? Other than that it was interesting (and sad) but not new ground.
