Sir David Attenborough’s latest documentary is being filmed for Oculus Rift, Atlantic Productions’ commercial director John Morris has revealed.

The program in question is called Conquest of the Skies and will offer viewers 360 degree views of Borneo. ”We’re now filming for the Oculus Rift,” he told Real Screen, “so when we filmed our recent flight in Borneo, we filmed with an eight-camera rig, so you got the full 360° experience.”

So far there’s no date for when the show will air, or any hint of how it will be made available to Oculus Rift owners.

Earlier this year, Facebook purchased Oculus Rift for $2 billion. In a press release for the acquisition, Facebook stated that it planned to expand the technology beyond gaming.
