I am currently studying Television Production and – as much as I enjoy it – Netflix is not the best resource for finding programmes to inspire future projects (mostly because I usually end up watching seven seasons of Buffy in two days).
Although there are catch up sites out there, it can be tedious scrolling through Iplayer and All4 to find the show you want. Box of Broadcasts is an online resource where you can search for hundreds of programmes as well as creating your own playlists, recording shows and creating clips all in one place just by signing in with your Westminster ID. For example I currently need to watch opening titles of a Television show and analyse them and instead of having to scroll through YouTube to find something convenient, I have shows at my fingertips so I can chose something I genuinely enjoy and can write passionately about.
Here you can see the scheduled programming for the day.
Box of Broadcasts is an amazing resource not only for the people studying on my course. It can be used by everyone to find material for essays, find inspiration for new works or even to take up time if you’re bored in your room and you’ve already blown through all the good series on Netflix (like I have).
Just a quick search and you can find anything (I fancied a bit of Holly and Phil)
