Now if only the movie studios would follow suit.

Fine with me. I'm not a huge fan of 3D. I don't even play my 3DS in 3D.

I had no idea the BBC had done any 3D before.

I've helped with a 20-part series for 3Net and it was a lot of work. Personally I found it a fad and 4K more interesting to work with.

Finally, an indication 3-D is wearing out its welcome!

...wasn't it also the first?

Either way, I'm happy to hear this. I've never liked 3D and I've been impatiently waiting for its demise.

Re: The anniversary special will be the BBC's last 3D production

The BBC is showing some of the tennis in 3D as it did for the olympics. I personally don't mind 3D but feel they should be the option of 2d (2hich there was) for those that don't want 3D.

Re: The anniversary special will be the BBC's last 3D production

It seems that they're calling it a day (for now - the full story says that they're not abandoning 3-D, just pausing it for three years, which not-so-coincidentally means until just after the next renewal of the BBC Charter in 2016) because the viewing figures for BBC 3-D transmissions were minimal, even in 3-D equipped homes.

Re: The anniversary special will be the BBC's last 3D production

...and here across the pond, ESPN is dumping their 3D sports network, which is being widely seen as a death-knell for the whole 3D TV genre for now.
