BBC brings Berlin air raid to VR in 1943: Berlin Blitz

1943: Berlin Blitz uses VR to breathe new life into the BBC Archive, using an extraordinary piece of war time journalism to transport you to Berlin at the height of the Second World War.

The production puts viewers in the shoes of BBC war correspondent Wynford Vaughan-Thomas, retracing his brave journey on a genuine bombing raid to Berlin.

VR takes the viewer to the belly of a Lancaster bomber, high over Berlin with anti-aircraft shells bursting all around, while Wynford’s dramatic radio commentary vividly captures both the danger and the excitement of the bombing raid.

This experience will be released later this year on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Vive Pro, Windows MR, Oculus Go, Daydream and Samsung Gear VR
