    Brilliant! So great to see actual actors in a 360 degree video! BBC congrats on the excellent decision to have yellowBird on the set to bring the viewer into the experience. yellowBird, another video of amazing quality and ingenuity. Now lets see a series of behind-the-scenes, or even specifically scripted web shorts.

    This is fantastic, although don't think it's really suited to the sitcom genre. I can see huge uses for young kids' tv, where using the interactive element could make up a further dimension in typical "can you find the..." scenarios.

    Question time could be good also to get any reactions missed by the directors.
