An even better BoB is here…

BoB is our on demand TV and radio service for education. As a core Learning on Screen resource, we’ve wanted to bring our members an even better BoB for some time. Over the last year we’ve listened to what you, our members want, and invested heavily in the service.

On 1 August the new BoB went live, with a fresh look, enhanced video quality and more powerful searching capabilities. Then from September, we’re delighted to say BoB will deliver a whole host of improvements…

  • A platform working across desktop, iOS and Android devices
  • Media records based on our TRILT metadata, supporting more powerful searching capabilities
  • Better programme coverage and a permanent archive of all broadcast content from nine channels: BBC1 London / BBC2 / BBC4 / ITV London / Channel 4 / More4 / Channel 5 / BBC Radio 4 / BBC Radio 4 Extra
  • Better thumbnail previews on search results
  • Preview clips before saving
  • Label your own clips
  • Personalised email alerts when programmes are ready to view
  • More detailed citation data

We’re really excited about the changes we’re making to the system, and we know you will be too. To visit the new BoB, go to:
