A free 2 week trial of Box of Broadcasts!

Box of Broadcasts

A free 2 week trial of Box of Broadcasts (BoB) is available to librarians and teachers in primary and secondary schools through the British Universities Film & Video Council (BUFVC). A charity established in 1948, the BUFVC supports teaching, learning and research by enabling access to quality broadcast television and radio programmes. 

An online service, BoB allows librarians and teachers to screen, record, clip and download well over 1.2 million TV and radio programmes broadcast in English as well as modern foreign languages including:  

•    900,000 BBC TV and radio programmes 

•    110,000 Channel 4, ITV and Channel 5 programmes

•    22,000 programmes from foreign language channels. 

BoB is available on desktops and handheld devices so it can be accessed outside school premises. Librarians and teachers can create playlists, access high quality metadata, share content with colleagues, edit clips and embed content in their VLE.   BoB allows schools to make use of their DfE funded Educational Recording Agency (ERA) Licence.

To request a free trial of BoB for your school please email: BoB@bufvc.ac.uk or call 020 7393 1505
