What Makes a Love Story?



Late last night – the BBC Imagine Series ran an episode called- What makes a Love Story? And you can catch it again on I-Player.


Imagine looked at the great books, films and pop songs that have tackled the thorny issue of love, pain and desire.


The programme explores the source of our obsession with romantic love through interviews with academics and specialists in the field.

Right through to the Rose of Romance with Mills and Boon.


One idea – the love story as a symbol of getting away from the family and growing up and leaving home. This is interesting to me since this is a powerful aspect of my current storyline in my WIP.
