What is BoB and what can it be used for?
Box of Broadcasts (BoB) is an off-air recording and media archive service. It allows for the recording of TV and radio programmes from a select list of channels. Once recorded, the programme can be streamed, very similar to service such as BBC’s iPlayer service. Unlike other streaming services, once the content is up, it is archived indefinitely for future use. Currently over 45,000 TV and radio programmes, covering all genres, can be accessed from the archive.
The archive is searchable for current content and for content coming up in the next seven days by keyword or title. Clips of programmes can also be made to support teaching and learning.
