BoB National is an off-air recording and media archive service
which is available to BUFVC members holding an ERA+ license. This low
cost tv scheduling service allows your University staff and students to
record programmes scheduled to be broadcast over the next seven days as
well as retrieving programmes from the last seven days of recorded channels.
The requestor will receive the programme after broadcast as a Flash Video
file they can watch in a web page – in the same way as i-player. BoB National
stores the recorded TV and Radio programmes in the archive and they are
held indefinitely for all users to access.
The archive currently offers thousands of TV and radio programmes covering
all genres and that number is set to rise as more universities join BoB

Accessing the system is easy, users sign up for an account with their
university email address and they instantly receive a password which grants
them access to the service. That’s all they will need to gain acess to
begin scheduling recordings and accessing thousands of programmes and
