Immersive Histories: Dam Busters

Immersive Histories: Dam Busters is an immersive virtual reality prototype which allows an audience to experience the famous ‘Dam Busters’ raid from a new and unique perspective.

The experience surrounds the audience with a physical set, which in conjunction with virtual reality visuals, spatialised audio and haptic feedback completely transports audiences to the skies above the Möhne dam in 1943, aboard an Avro Lancaster bomber.

We have collaborated with the Imperial War Museums who have provided historical consultancy on the experience, ensuring that we portray the events of Operation Chastise as realistically and faithfully as possible.

This prototype is supported by Digital Catapult and Arts Council England as a part of CreativeXR.
