The Inspection Chamber - BBC R&D

We’ve seen a lot of examples of interactive audio stories which operate like a Choose Your Own Adventure book.... It takes you out of the moment and forces you to step back and consider your choice at a level of remove from the story and in the context of all the other choices you’ve made. In this pilot, you’re actively playing a part in the story, using your own voice - we wanted to make it feel like you’re having a genuine, direct interaction with the other characters in the piece.
