Tips for finding the film you want to watch –
Simple search –
In Box of Broadcasts – click on the Search button and enter your film title.
Pick out the film from the results list, click on the title and enjoy!
If you get too many results and can’t see your film, try adding the word Film to your search. If that doesn’t help, use the Search Options. Restricting your search to Title Only, may narrow down the results enough for you to pick out the film you want.
If the title uses very common words, you may need to add more information by including an actor or director’s name. If you do this you can’t search Titles only, so select Exclude transcripts or All fields instead.
Happy viewing!Leave a comment
