How do I record programmes in Box of Broadcasts?
Students and staff can make a maximum of 20 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.
The nine most popular channels are listed first, with all content automatically recorded after broadcast.
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
- Blue: available to record
- Amber: scheduled to record and in the transcoding queue
- Green: available to watch now
Please note that Box of Broadcasts is not available to students or staff based overseas.
