The latest edition of David Mitchell's online video podcast Soapbox will be broadcast tomorrow in 3D, it has been announced.

Launched last year under sponsorship from skincare brand Bulldog, David Mitchell's Soapbox features the British comedian and actor discussing current affairs and everyday life.

The online show has since become one of the most downloaded video podcasts in the history of iTunes, with more than 3 million views to date.

The latest five-minute episode in the current series has been shot entirely in 3D, making Mitchell the first British comedian known to have made a 3D programme.

Tomorrow, the episode will be streamed online at the Bulldog website, with viewers needing to acquire a pair of 3D glasses to watch it.

On October 1, Sky will launch its new Sky 3D channel to residential subscribers, with the opening weekend featuring Ryder Cup coverage and the TV premieres of 3D films Bolt and Monsters vs Aliens.
