For the first time, you can bring a dinosaur and an early human to life before your eyes with the unique, state-of-the-art interactive film Who Do You Think You Really Are?
Narrated by Sir David Attenborough, this film uses screens, webcams and specially designed, hand-held devices to takes you on a virtual journey through your evolutionary past. Extinct creatures appear to roam around in the studio using augmented reality – the blending of computer graphics into real life. Using CGI models developed with the support of the Wellcome Trust, BBC natural history footage and interviews with leading Natural History Museum scientists, the interactive film explores how we have gradually evolved from the earliest life form. Thanks to an innovative partnership with BBC Research & Development, this is the first time augmented reality has been used in a high-profile public space.
Every day at 3.30pm; most weekends at 11am.
