The secret life of plants

Through the magic of volumetric capture and augmented reality, a holographic Sir David Attenborough takes visitors on an immersive journey through the wonders of the natural world. 

In the heart of Piccaddilly Circus

Powered by EE’s 5G network, thousands of visitors to London’s Piccadilly Circus were taken through five extraordinary digitally enhanced worlds – including Rainforest, Freshwater, Saltwater, Desert and Seasonal – and learn why they are so vital to the future of our planet.

Sir David Attenborough was filmed in 4k in our state-of-the-art mobile studio, Polymotion Stage (shout out to our partners MRMC).

The volumetric shoot also captured broadcast quality sound, ensuring Sir Attenborough’s entire performance was recorded to the highest standards possible.

An environment of collaboration

From stunning visuals and exciting storytelling to the latest 5G technology and leading scientific research, the ground-breaking Green Planet Experience was brought to life through the incredible contributions of a leading consortium of experts and picked up the ‘Maximum Citizen Impact & Reach’ at UK 5G's Showcase Awards.
