This is awesome:

Give your video calls a makeover, with this selection of over 100 empty sets from the BBC Archive.

Who hasn't wanted to host a pub quiz from the Queen Vic, conduct a job interview from the confines of Fletch's cell, or catch up with friends and family from the bridge of the Liberator in Blake's 7?

Click on an image to bring up a full quality downloadable version, right click and select "Save image as...", then set it as your background image in your video conferencing application.

Cushty!

Will these work in Zoom and will you need a green screen?


No green screen required. Just decent lighting and stable place your webcam.

For those who use Microsoft Teams, you can also add custom backgrounds to that via the following filename -
C:-Users-*your username*-AppData-Roaming-Microsoft-Teams-Backgrounds-Uploads .
Save your image in there and then it'll appear in the Background effects on the app. It only works with images though and not video Smile

*In the filename I've replaced the backslash with a dash as for some reason it won't show.

Also works on macs ~Library - application support - microsoft - teams - background - uploads

The key thing is you need to use one of the default backgrounds first, otherwise the folder won't exist and it won't work even if you make it manually.
