Films of Scotland (BBC Scotland documentary series, 2010)


Series introduced by comedian Greg Hemphill looking at the films made to promote Scotland between 1938 and 1982.
Episode 3: Holidays
Opens with excerpts from Busman's Holiday, made in 1960. Seen here is Scottish Omnibuses B465 (KSC543),an AEC Regal IV/Alexander built April 1953:
Western Scottish DG1120 (GCS206), a Guy Arab LUF 6HLW/Alexander is only seen from the side and from behind:
The bus interest continues in further films. Two vehicles from Beukens Coaches are seen from behind in convoy. I can't speak for the orange coach behind, nor can I recognise Beukens as a coach firm, but leading it is TKY686, identified by Martin Ingle as a Burlingham Seagull 60 bodied Bedford SB new to Baddeley Brothers:
'Travelpass - It's Just The Ticket' unsurprisingly features more buses. Two young ladies take a trip using their Travelpasses. We don't get to see the bus they start out on:
...but they switch to Highland CD36 (GST953F), a Bedford VAM70/Willowbrook:
Also seen is this MacBrayne Bedford VAS/Duple Midland:
In 'Perthshire Panorama' we briefly see a Bedford SB with Burlingham Seagull body:
Later we seen Aberdeen buses and a tram:
....and an Edinburgh Leyland Atlantean, albeit out of focus:
Many thanks to John Wakefield for help with these!
