Sensory: BBC Wildlife Director John Downer and the Technology of ‘Spy-Cam’ Filmmaking

This has resulted in exceptional and unique technical solutions that tell a story in an new and compelling way.

Watch how José and his probably-too-good-to-be-true dogs lead tourists on improbable journeys in search of the Internet connection. Despite their efforts, we believe there’s a better way to spend your summer: looking for the fun and not for the Wi-Fi.
