Gene Pitney - 24 Hours From Tulsa
John Hewitt caught a clip from this on an edition of the BBC2 'Never Mind The Buzzcocks' quiz show showing Gene Pitney sitting at the back of what might be a Duple bodied coach. John suggested seeing the full sequence might reveal an external shot of the vehicle, so I followed this up. The truth was even stranger than I'd expected. American icon Pitney sits in the back of a Duple-bodied Bedford VAM while crossing the then new Severn Bridge from England into Wales. The song was released in 1963; the bridge was opened in 1966, so this sequence would I'd guess be from a UK TV special:
Placebo - Slave to the Wage
