Extraordinary Stories in Virtual Reality

Coming Soon: A Virtual Reality Documentary on the BBC


As it continues to explore how it can innovate content, the BBC seems to be really pushing the envelope of possibilities. They just announced that they will be releasing a documentary in virtual reality.

The program is tentatively titled Easter Rising: Voice of a Rebel, which will put viewers in the shoes of Willie McNieve, a 19 year old who bore witness to the armed insurrection in Ireland. The story takes people through McNieve’s personal account of the events, thus giving them a more personal and intimate glimpse of the rebellion.
