Recommended resource: Box of Broadcasts

Box of Broadcasts (BoB) is an online TV and radio recording service. You can opt to record programmes from over 65 TV and radio channels, and access a growing media archive of more than 2,000,000 programmes.

Points to note when using BoB:

  • It is best accessed using Google Chrome
  • It can be accessed using your standard Leeds Beckett username and password
  • Due to licensing restrictions, it can only be accessed from the UK

We also have access to Leeds Beckett TV, an on-demand media recording service for Leeds Beckett staff. Content includes recordings of recent and historic film and television broadcasts, as well as in-house content such as inaugural lectures and graduation ceremonies.

Key news sources

Other, more specialist news sources are available, particularly for historical research.
