In one-off documentary Is Love Racist? The Dating Game, sociologist and broadcaster Emma Dabiri looks at racism in Britain through the world of modern dating, and asks if young Britons are unwittingly more segregated than ever.
The programme unveils the results of a national survey of British online dating habits to reveal surprising new trends. Emma unpacks the survey results through a volunteer group of young British singletons, who take part in a series of experiments to discover if there’s more than meets the eye going on in the flighty world of modern dating apps.
Emma also meets a number of controversial interviewees – from Mobo-award winning rapper Nadia Rose, through to BAME equal opportunities campaigner Baroness McGregor-Smith.
