Journalism 360: Creating the BBC's First Augmented Reality App


BBC - Civilisations AR: Preview.
Creating for Augmented Reality
Civilisations AR brings artifacts of ancient civilizations to life, from Renaissance masterpieces to ancient Egypt. The project is a collaboration between BBC Arts, BBC R&D, Nexus Studios and about 30 museums and galleries in the U.K. The concept came, in part, from a 2017 BBC Two series called Civilisations, a 10-episode show looking at 5,000 works of art over the course of human history.

Part of the aim of the app is to make art and culture of the U.K. more accessible. “Not just working with the big museums but also with the smaller regional galleries to get access to the hidden treasures they hold,” says Nick Hanson, a producer on the project. The team invited museums to submit artifacts from their collections — with over 280 artifacts submitted from over 50 museums and galleries, the final app features about 40 artifacts.
