WAR OF WORDS VR public reaction (video)
Britain’s greatest war poet Siegfried Sassoon prepares you for battle. ‘War Of Words VR’ uses virtual reality to take you back to 1916, and into a mindset captured by Sassoon’s controversial poem ‘THE KISS’.
This FREE app is an animated poetry experience in partnership with BBC Arts and promoting a feature-length documentary War of Words – Soldier-Poets of the Somme narrated by actor Michael Sheen.
BAFTA nominated, WAR of WORDS VR is the first VR App made for the BBC. The experience is designed for Google Cardboard stereo viewers and other virtual reality phone mounts.
An anthology of seven animated poems can be viewed here in: THE SOMME IN SEVEN POEMS, BDH’s short collection commemorating the centenary of WW1 for BBC iPlayer.
