What is BFI Replay?

BFI Replay is a free streaming service for public libraries with thousands of digitised videos and television programmes from the collections of the BFI National Archive and UK regions and nations film archives, alongside contributions from other significant archives such as BBC and ITV.

The videos span six decades, from the 1960s to the 2010s, offering a glimpse into Britain’s past, its people and places; recording and revealing an era of rapid social, industrial, political and technological change.

How to access BFI Replay and finding out more

BFI Replay is a web application that will work on any desktop PCs found in libraries using a secure IP address provided on signing up to the service.

Library services need to register with the BFI and will need to supply all public IP address ranges used by the library service. IT teams should easily be able to supply this.

Users may also access BFI Replay on their mobile and tablet devices in libraries that offer bring-your-own-device services.
