The renowned wildlife broadcaster Sir David Attenborough, who presented the Life series and narrated The Blue Planet and Planet Earth, is developing a new nature documentary for the Oculus Rift. While the virtual reality headset has set the gaming industry ablaze, this project presents yet another example of how the device is being adopted by the mainstream and the opportunities that virtual reality brings to the entertainment industry.

The documentary, titled “Conquest of the Skies,” is being made via Atlantic Productions’ joint venture with Sky, Colossus Productions, and will capture the views of Borneo. Atlantic’s commercial director John Morris said in an interview with Real Screen:

“We’re now filming for the Oculus Rift, so when we filmed our recent flight in Borneo, we filmed with an eight-camera rig, so you got the full 360° experience.”
