BBC Horizon - Online Dating Experiment

Posted by admin on August 18, 2015

Award-winning BBC science series Horizon is exploring the world of online dating, and we need your help.

We’re looking for fun, open minded singles of all ages and preferences to take part in our 'Dating Extravaganza' – a big group event which will be filmed in London this September as part of an upcoming documentary.

Our dating event will be an opportunity to meet lots of new people while trying out a whole range of fun tests and demos.  Can our mathematicians use Game Theory to find your best dating strategy?  Can our computer whizzes digitally tweak your photo to make you look more outgoing or more intelligent?  Could science make you fall in love with a stranger?

To be considered you must be:

  • Aged 18 years or over
  • Willing to appear on TV
  • Able to come to our studio in London for an day in September (exact date TBC)
