The Vostok-K Incident

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2018.

It’s the darkest days of the Cold War. Paranoia reigns and a British pilot is caught up in a bizarre Russian experiment. Welcome to the Vostok-K Incident, an S3A and BBC drama exploring the future of radio by unlocking the creative potential of 3D immersive sound. Pulling together audio devices like laptops, mobiles, tablets, and smart speakers, hear extracts from the drama and meet researchers from the University of Salford who helped develop this groundbreaking idea.
