FRONTLINE is committed to investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. We also care deeply about exploring the space where journalism and technology meet.
That is why I am so pleased to invite you to experience FRONTLINE’s first 360-degree video, published today on Facebook. Filmed on 360-degree cameras in West Africa, Ebola Outbreak: A Virtual Journey will bring you into the heart of the worst Ebola outbreak on record. You’ll even visit the very spot where the epidemic is believed to have begun.
FRONTLINE is one of a handful of organizations debuting spherical videos in tandem with Facebook's announcement today — you can learn more here.
Visit FRONTLINE on Facebook to experience Ebola Outbreak: A Virtual Journey in 360-degree video — and to explore for yourself how the massive outbreak began, and why it wasn’t stopped sooner.
This 360 documentary is a collaborative project with the content studio Secret Location and Columbia University’s Tow Center for Digital Journalism.
