Designing Worlds is the hit weekly show on design and designers in virtual worlds, brought to you by Prim Perfect Productions, the people behind Prim Perfect and The Primgraph magazines. It's broadcast every week by Treet TV, the leading TV network in today's virtual environments such as Second Life. From its roots as a "meta-makeover" show, the programme has developed into a magazine/factual format, adding interviews and visits to some of the most impressive locations in Second Life and other virtual environments. The show goes out in 720p High Definition every Monday at 2pm SLT/Pacific Time and is repeated through the week on the Treet Lifestyle channel. Shows can also be viewed on the Treet web site and downloaded as podcasts via iTunes.
Designing Worlds is presented by Saffia Widdershins, the Editor of Prim Perfect Magazine, and Elrik Merlin of Radio Riel.
Below, watch a clip from one of our favourite shows - a visit to an amazing recreation of the Western Front in the First World War, created by the First World War Poetry Digital Archive and the Learning Technologies Group at the University of Oxford. They have imported a range of digitised archival materials from the major poets of the First World War (including poetry manuscripts, letters and diaries) along with contextual primary source materials, into the Second Life environment.
