Dermot's Sporting Buddies (BBC series, 2002)


In one show Dermot O'Leary meets comedian Johnny Vegas in his hometown of St Helens. Part of the show was filmed aboard former Southport open top 1947 all-Leyland Titan PD2/3 87 (FFY404). (thanks to Grahame Bessey and Nigel Utting) Pete Weatherby adds "It was converted to open top in the early sixties along with five others from the same batch. Their roofs could be replaced in winter (These roofs were scrapped in about 1970). It along with FFY 401/3 survived till 1976 and passed into preservation. All three had different owners until they were gradually bought by Mr H.J.M. Royden and are currently stored at the St Helens Transport Museum. FFY 402 is also preserved and under going restoration at Wythall, Birmingham."
