Television and Radio Index for Learning and Teaching (TRILT) is a database of UK television and radio programme information available to BUFVC members.

It covers over 350 different channels and includes programme data from 1995 onwards. Over a million records are added to the database each year.

WAYFless URL: https://login.bufvc.ac.uk/wayfless.php?entityID=INSTITUTION_IDP&target=http%3A%2F%2Fbufvc.ac.uk%2Ftvandradio%2Ftrilt

Remember to replace INSTITUTION_IDP with the Institution's IDP as registered in the UK Federation.

Note:

21. WAYFless URLs for `"BUFVC" SPs

There have been some changes to BUFVC's servers and SP, so as a result the way their WAYFless URLs are constructed have had to change.

In particular, they are now using SP-side WAYFless URLs: these are generally considered to be less brittle and will not need to be altered if you update or replace your IdP.

All of these URLs are based on the same template

https://login.bufvc.ac.uk/wayfless.php?entityID=$INSTITUTION_IDP&target=$BUFVC_SERVICE

with two parameters: $INSTITUTION_IDP and $BUFVC_SERVICE

Create the first by URL-encoding your IdP's entityID as registered in the federation and listed in BUFVC's members database, so that https://idp.rummidge.ac.uk/entity would become https%3a%2f%2fidp.rummidge.ac.uk%2fentity.

The second should be replaced with any of the BUFVC Services you'd like to have direct access to. See below the current collections:

TRILT: http%3a%2f%2fbufvc.ac.uk%2ftvandradio%2ftrilt
RADIO: http%3a%2f%2fbufvc.ac.uk%2ftvandradio%2findependent-radio
TVTip: http%3a%2f%2fbufvc.ac.uk%2ftvandradio%2ftvtip
ThisWeek: http%3a%2f%2fbufvc.ac.uk%2ftvandradio%2fthisweek

Examples for some BUFVC Services, these already contain the "target" parameter, but you will need to add your own IdP's entityID:

BUFVC: https://login.bufvc.ac.uk/wayfless.php?entityID=INSTITUTION_IDP&target=http%3A%2F%2Fbufvc.ac.uk

TRILT: https://login.bufvc.ac.uk/wayfless.php?entityID=INSTITUTION_IDP&target=http%3A%2F%2Fbufvc.ac.uk%2Ftvandradio%2Ftrilt

RADIO: https://login.bufvc.ac.uk/wayfless.php?entityID=INSTITUTION_IDP&target=http%3A%2F%2Fbufvc.ac.uk%2Ftvandradio%2Findependent-radio
