Easter Rising: Voice of a Rebel

BBC Learning, Crossover Labs, and VRTOV

Eyewitness historical accounts paint a vivid picture of the past; virtual productions take a step beyond and place people in key moments in history. Easter Rising places the viewer in the boots of 19 year-old Willie McNeive, a rebel against the British during the key moment in history.

Portraying the critical moment in history from the rebel’s perspective helps to bring the past to life, as a powerful storytelling tool.
