 About Box of Broadcasts

Box of Broadcasts (BoB) is a service from Learning on Screen (formerly the British Universities Film & Video Council) that enables users to record and view TV and radio online from over 50 free-to-air channels in the UK.  You can select programmes up to 30 days after broadcast and request programmes to be recorded one week in advance. The BBC archive is now available within BoB offering TV and radio broadcasts from 2007. The recorded programmes are kept indefinitely and added to a growing media archive with all content shared by users across every subscribing institution.
