Bob has arrived!

Box of Broadcasts (known as BoB) is an off-air recording and media archive service, which the University of Westminster has recently subscribed to.  Current subscribers also include the universities of Leeds, Brighton, Edinburgh, Manchester, Portsmouth, Bournemouth and others.

BOB allows users to watch, record and archive TV and radio programmes from selected free-view channels (including BBC1, BBC2, BBC3, BBC4, ITV, Channel4, Five, BBC Radio3, BBC Radio 4 and others).

Users can view archived programmes, make clips from them and create personal or shared playlists.

Users can also make additions to the BoB archive, by requesting programmes to be added to the archive.

Use the 'where are you from' login to access, using this link; and create an account to access the full features.  Watch the videos from the Unversity of Bournemouth below for a great overview.

Further information is available from the Academic Liaison Librarian team.
