Box of Broadcasts


Box of Broadcasts (aka BoB National)


We are delighted to be subscribing to BoB this year, along with around 80 other academic institutions across the UK.

BoB enables staff and students to choose and record any broadcast programme from 60+ TV and radio channels. The recorded programmes are then kept indefinitely (no expiry) and added to a growing media archive (currently at over 1 million programmes), with all content shared by users across all subscribing institutions. You can catch-up on missed programmes on and off-campus, schedule recordings in advance, edit programmes into clips, create playlists, embed clips into VLEs, share what you are watching with others, and search a growing archive of material.


  • all BBC TV and radio content dating from 2007 (800,000+ programmes)
  • over 10 foreign language channels, including French, German and Italian
  • Apple iOS compatibility – watch BoB on handheld devices
  • searchable transcripts
  • links to social media – share what you’re watching online
  • a one-click citation reference, allowing you to cite programmes in your work

See our webpage on TV for Learning for more information about BoB and other sources of video material.
