The BBC’s first mobile bureau will spend the rest of October in Baton Rouge.
The six-month experimental project launched in Boulder, Colorado, in September. BBC Pop Up is made up of a small team of BBC video journalists who are taking up residence in a different U.S. city each month to produce locally sourced short and long form video content for the BBC’s global news services, on TV on the 24-hour news network BBC World News and online at bbc.com, a release from the BBC says.
In Colorado, BBC Pop up reported on the impact of flooding on local communities one year on, issues around affordable housing, the consequences and impact of Colorado’s new gun control laws and sexual assaults at local colleges.
