How do I record programmes in Box of Broadcasts?
Students and staff can make a maximum of 5 recording requests in Box of Broadcasts (BoB) in one day. If another BoB customer has already recorded a programme, or scheduled it to record, you will be able to view it too.
To record a programme
- Log in to BoB
- Find a programme through the programme guide or search tool, then click Record
You may be prompted to request a programme from the BBC Archive – it may be a couple of hours before this content is ready to view.
There is a 30 day recording buffer to give you more time to record missed programmes.
When using the programme guide the shading of individual programmes indicate
- Grey: Available to record
- Red: Scheduled to record, but not yet broadcasted
- Amber: Scheduled to record and in the transcoding queue. These programmes can take up to 12 hours from the end of broadcast to become available for streaming)
- Green: Available to watch now. These programmes alreay been recorded. Click Add to Playlist, or click View to get the details.
