This might be of interest:  Rediscovering the Birthplace of Television - Virtual Reality at Alexandra Palace.  I've tried it by downloading the App to my iPhone and watching it using a VR headset (referred to as a Cardboard when running the App), but it works on a tablet too.  It enables the viewer to see inside the most relevant areas at AP, and superimposed archive material helps to show what happened there in the very early days of television. It must have been a difficult project, especially given the state of AP, but I think that the production team have done well!
