Further to my earlier post on BoB this morning: BoB is being relaunched in October with some significant improvements.
- access to more than 800,000 new BBC TV and radio programmes, dating from 2007, from the BBC archive
- an additional 13 foreign language channels
- an extended recording buffer – giving you more channels, available for longer
- a new website look, including colour, theme, functionality and improved navigation.
- the ability to search across future and recorded programmes simultaneously
- interactive transcripts and dynamic subtitle searches
- Apple iOS compatibility
- the ability to easily create clips and clip compilations, and share programmes and playlists via social media
- the option to make YouTube-style comments on progammes
- a quick link to the new BUFVC AV Citation Guidelines, allowing you the opportunity to reference programmes within your work easily.
