The groundbreaking 15 minute long film will focus on the people who inhabited the tower rather than the event itself or the questions of who was to blame for the incident.

Combining documentary interviews shot in stereoscopic 360 with computer-generated animation, the film will focus on important events and poignant every-day moments of the residents’ lives, incorporating the contributors’ own photos and video footage. 

James Nesbitt fronts new series exploring Grenfell Tower and other British disasters

Commissioned by A+E Networks UK, the series takes a unique and extraordinary look at some of the most impactful events to have affected Britain in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Set to air in early 2018 on History, the original six-part series will unravel the events that led to some of the most devastating disasters of the past 60 years.

Grenfell Tower tradegy: a hug too far?

Britain suffered a late spring and early summer of terrorist and other man-made tragedies: the attacks at Westminster Bridge, Manchester Arena, London Bridge and Finsbury Park, and the Grenfell Tower fire. There were moments of very raw emotion amid the days of live TV coverage and even during the later, more reflective, reporting.

An eye-witness told the BBC of a victim who had their throat cut by one of the London Bridge attackers. We watched live on ITV as an elderly man gazed helplessly out of his window in a blazing tower block wondering if he would be burned alive.
