The work presented in this paper takes a novel approach to the task of providing information to viewers of broadcast news. Instead of considering the broadcast news as the end product, this work uses it as a starting point to dynamically build an information space for the user to explore. This information space is designed to satisfy the user's information needs, by containing more breadth, depth, and points of view than the original broadcast story. The architecture and current implementation are discussed, and preliminary results from the analysis of some its components are presented.
