About Buses on Screen


Buses on Screen celebrates buses as they've been depicted on screen over the years, on film, on TV, in screen advertising, even in music videos. This is the perfect meeting of a great form of public transport and one of the great mediums of mass communication!

If you've sung along with Cliff Richard in 'Summer Holiday', or you've thrilled to Sandra Bullock's driving in 'Speed', if you've ever wondered what happened to that bus on the side of the mountain in 'The Italian Job', or been amazed by Harry Potter's triple decker bus, well......that's just the start. (We didn't mention 'On The Buses', did we?)

This website aims to chronicle all those buses and more; it's the ultimate fusion of bus enthusiasm and film and TV trivia.
Buses on Screen started out as an offshoot of The Bus Station - now it's a website in its own right. Have you seen a bus on screen? Have you provided a bus for filming? You can help this project grow - submit your sightings, no matter how obscure, how half-forgotten.
If you can't remember all the details, don't worry about it - someone else will!
