Television and Radio Index for Learning and Teaching (TRILT)

TRILT search supports more complicated searches than BoB. The two services are very closely linked, so if you find what you need in TRILT, you can click straight through to the relevant BoB record to watch it.

NB TRILT  indexes a vast archive of programmes, so when searching you must remember to select Available on BoB in order to limit your search to those programmes we have access to.
