13 Norfolk Place, W2 1QJ London, United Kingdom
The Frontline Club will be hosting a series of screenings for the launch of a new virtual reality news documentary from the BBC. With headsets provided, we will be screening the immersive documentary followed by a Q&A with BBC Africa’s correspondent Alastair Leithead, executive producer and head of BBC’s VR Hub Zillah Watson and digital development director for BBC News James Montgomery on the potential this new technology holds for the future of news reporting.


The Nile is the world’s longest river, and it’s where the world’s first war over water could be fought. For millennia Egypt has been the river’s great superpower, but now an ambitious and emerging Ethiopia has dammed the Blue Nile – where most of its water comes from. “Damming the Nile” is a virtual reality documentary series from BBC News, taking viewers on a deeply immersive journey down the Nile from its source to the sea through Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt. On assignment with the BBC’s Africa correspondent and his team, you’ll explore the geopolitical struggles for regional power and influence along the Nile and investigate how these nations are navigating these choppy waters. Enjoy the ride.
