BBC’s natural history programmes have long exposed the beauty and fragility of our planet to a global audience, and inspired interest in the current state and future of life on Earth. Now BBC Worldwide and Google have teamed up to bring fans of the BBC’s natural history programmes an immersive real-time virtual reality experience inspired by series like Blue Planet II and Planet Earth II. The panel will bring together BBC Earth: Life in VR’s core team to explore the editorial and strategic aims of the project alongside the creative / transformational intent of this landmark format. They will also discuss the opportunities VR developers have to reach mainstream audiences, and provide insight into how to best shape a product around their wants and needs. They also hope to present data from the product and where it’s going next.
