BBC Pop Up: Crowdsourcing story ideas in Boulder, Colorado

BBC News not only brings audiences the latest breaking news, it also gives them the global perspective - showing the diversity of people's lives and helping people understand how international stories are connected.

As part of the BBC's commitment to live the story, we're launching a new project called BBC Pop Up.

Over the next six months a team of BBC journalists will explore the US, setting up a mobile bureau for a month in six very different regions of the country. First stop is Boulder, Colorado.

BBC video journalists Matt Danzico and Benjamin Zand explain why the BBC is hitting the road to find out from Americans what stories they want to hear told.

You can also follow a behind the scenes blog on the Pop Up Tumblr.
