Spotlight on Eresources - BoB (Box of Broadcasts) National

BoB (Box of Broadcasts) National is an online TV and radio recording service for UK universities. All staff and students at Birkbeck can choose and record any broadcast programme from 60+ TV and radio channels. The recorded programmes are then kept indefinitely and added to a growing media archive (currently at over 1 million programmes), with all content shared by users across all subscribing institutions.

You  can record and catch-up on missed programmes on and off-campus (UK mainland only), schedule recordings in advance, edit programmes into clips, create playlists, link to clips from Moodle, share what you are watching with others and search a growing archive of material.
