This research discusses a method for delivering just-in-time information to television viewers to provide more depth and more breadth to television broadcasts. A novel aspect of this research is that it uses broadcast news as a starting point for gathering information regarding specific stories, as opposed to considering the broadcast version to be the end of the viewer's exploration. This work is implemented in Cronkite, a system that provides viewers with expanded coverage of broadcast news stories.
