A Place for Paedophiles is a British documentary that was televised on 19 April 2009. Produced and presented by Louis Theroux, the documentary ran for 60 minutes, and took place at Coalinga State Hospital, a hospital for paedophiles. Theroux was the first film-maker to be allowed to film and interview the patients at the hospital.
The program was widely praised for its approach to the subject of paedophilia. Leicester Mercury called the programme "a brilliantly-made, well-observed documentary. Fascinating, not sensationalist or sympathetic."
