BBC’s Horizon is Looking for Couples Who Have Found Love Online

The award-winning BBC science series Horizon is making a new film about online dating, and they need your help. This is what they have said:

We’re looking for fun, open-minded volunteers to take part in an up-coming documentary, as BBC Horizon delves into the world of online dating and asks whether science and maths can really help people find love. We’re looking for couples who met online to be interviewed together on-camera, talking about anything from how they met to awkward date anecdotes and advice they have for modern daters still looking for that special someone.

If you met your partner online and are interested in finding out more, we’d be delighted to hear from you!

To be considered for the episode you must be:

- Aged 18 or over
- Willing to be on TV
- Able to come to our studio in London for a half-day in late September (exact date TBC)

To apply, email us at with:

- a photo of yourselves together as a couple
- a line or two about how you met
- a contact email address and telephone number (*all contact details will remain confidential and will not be shared beyond BBC Horizon production team)

A member of the Horizon team will then get back to you.

Update: How to Manage Your Settings

hand on a computer mouseThe way that you access online dating websites may change due to new website filtering guidelines which are being applied by internet service providers (ISPs). The guidelines were put in place to protect children from seeing unsuitable content, but they can also mean that adults are unable to access their online dating accounts.

If you find that your service provider is blocking your access to dating websites, The Online Dating Association has given advice about how to update your filter settings. Click on the name of your ISPs below to find out how to update your settings to allow access to online dating websites, including Muddy Matches:

BT Parental Controls

TalkTalk Home Safe

Sky Broadband Shield

Virgin Media Web Safe

Please read the instructions carefully, as they are different for each ISP.
