The objective of the EU/IST funded MUMIS project is to develop technology for automatic indexing of multimedia programme material (texts, news streams, speech transcripts) and to develop a user interface that supports the conceptual querying and browsing of related video content over the internet. One of the innovative features of MUMIS is that it aims at the disclosure of video archives by applying information extraction techniques, originally developed for the textual domain. In MUMIS the extraction technology is applied to the domain of football. In this report we survey a number of research efforts that all deal with football commentary but for which the technology focus differs: retrieval, interpretation or generation of commentary and related, not necessarily language oriented, research. There were two reasons for this investigation. One obvious reason is to find out how the MUMIS technology and tools can be adapted to similar applications. The other is to see how the domain knowledge obtained for extraction purposes can be employed for other intelligent applications in the same domain.
