Perceptive Media

Tuesday 12th June 2018

I co-invented the concept of Perceptive Media and produced the world's first example. Perceptive Media are programmes that are created in a way that allows them to respond to the viewer or listener and adapt to better suit the individual audience member's needs: resulting in television or radio programmes that can react in a similar fashion to responsive web. This was the first attempt to produce and distribute a radio programme in a way that allows the storytelling to adapt to suit the listener. "Breaking Out" was a radio drama that sets itself in the listener's location. Listen to the production here (requires a Chrome web-browser). Read the BBC News story about the work here.
