The Resuscitation Council UK has produced an interactive film: 'Lifesaver'

Lifesaver is an interactive app and live-action movie you play like a game. It shows you how to save someone's life. It throws you into the heart of the action, changing what happens in movies showing real people in real places. You learn by doing: do it wrong, and see the consequences; do it right, and sense the thrill of saving a life. It is free to use.

Lifesaver VR is an innovative and ground-breaking live-action movie that you play like a virtual reality game. Lifesaver VR throws you into the heart of the action as three young people are faced with a life-or-death situation. You control their movements as you make crucial decisions and learn essential life-saving skills.

Lifesaver VR is suitable for everyone, but is especially appealing to young people.

Lifesaver VR requires a VR headset and mobile phone to play.
