Box of Broadcasts (BoB) is an on demand TV and radio service for education. Staff and students at subscribing institutions can record programmes from over 65 free-to-air channels, and search an extensive archive, as well as creating clips, and compiling playlists. BoB is produced by Learning on Screen: the British Universities and Colleges Film and Video Council.


Access is available directly from this page by connecting to the BoB website - you'll be prompted to log in to MUSE as necessary.

The first time you connect to the new BoB website, you'll be asked to complete a short form to set up your account. Please use the same email address that you used on the old BoB website, if you want to import your clips and playlists.

Please note that you may only access or use BoB in the United Kingdom. If you are in another country the licence does not apply and you may not access BoB content, even if you are an authorised user in the UK.


If you experience any difficulties in using this eResource please call the Library HelpDesk on extension 27200 or email
