Clips that are based on video segments at the end of a program may take some time to buffer. The time taken will depend on your connection and the length of the program. You may see a white screen above the player controls during this time.

You need to be logged in with your username to see the My Favourites and My Clip Playlist tabs.

A simple search will look for any of the search terms in the program record. All fields are searched, including captions. By default, the results will be sorted by relevance.

An advanced search provides additional options to focus your search. Here you may search for exact phrases. You may limit your search to a specific subject area and broadcast date, and you can specify what metadata fields are searched, i.e. title, description, captions.
