Search Options

By clicking on ‘Search Options’ you can filter the search in different ways, including the option to ‘exclude transcripts.’ This can be useful if you are searching for a programme by title and do not want to include results where the word happens to appear within the transcript of other programmes. You can also limit your search to only include TV or Radio programmes or set the criteria for the last week, month or year.
