Films and TV

  • Box of Broadcasts (BoB) is a service which gives you access to thousands of recorded radio and TV programmes including films from an online archive.  It allows users to record programmes which will then be stored on the database. BoB mainly covers UK channels, but a few European channels have been added to the service. First-time users will be prompted to register. You can search for programmes already recorded, view the programme guide and also search for playlists and create your own.
