The Business of Love

18 minutes
First broadcast:
Wednesday 16 January 2013

What is the price of love, that's the question today's programme addresses. Online dating was one of the first businesses on the web and is still going strong - but how well does it actually work? Can you really find love online?

Plus fancy a cherry blonde? We discover how online dating has become increasingly specialised with an interview with Mark Lesnick who runs iDate 2013, an international dating industry conference which starts today in Las Vegas.
