Box of Broadcasts (aka BoB National)
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
