Fellow Anthony Geffen Wins First Ever BAFTA for Virtual Reality Film

St Cross Fellow Anthony Geffen has made television history by winning the first ever BAFTA for a Virtual Reality (VR) experience. The BAFTA was awarded to Atlantic Productions' virtual reality studio Alchemy VR. David Attenborough's Great Barrier Reef Dive VR won the Digital Creativity category at an awards ceremony held on Monday 24 April, which means Atlantic's partnership with David Attenborough now has three BAFTAs in total. The film has been seen across the world from the Natural History Museum in London to the Australian Museum in Sydney.
