The eight disabled people taking part in Channel 4's The Undateables

Channel 4's new series The Undateables, in which eight disabled people attempt to find love, provoked a huge amount of debate before it was even broadcast. This week audiences finally get the chance to view the first episode for themselves, and in the BBC News Magazine Damon Rose examines some of the complexities involved in dating when you're disabled. Meanwhile, on BBC iPlayer you can listen again to the Tuesday 3 April edition of Radio 4's Woman's Hour, which features a discussion about the programme.
