McCloud (NBC police drama, 1970-7)


Dennis Weaver plays a Marshal from Taos, New Mexico, who takes a temporary assignment in the New York City Police. This fish-out-of-water scenario allows him to wear a cowboy hat and ride a horse in New York.......

Episode 3.02 The Barefoot Stewardess Caper:

An episode set in London uses stock footage, firstly of Heathrow Airport, with a Bedford SB/Duple Bella Vega in foreground, and a BOAC-liveried Leyland Atlantean in the distance:
A foreign Van Hool coach approaches and passes the statue of King Charles next to Trafalgar Square, followed by a London Transport AEC Routemaster. The Duple bodied coach in bcground is unidentifiable:
The real action however was filmed in the USA; the 'London' bus is a red Leyland Titan. Fleet number is 38, but the registration plate is VUF34 - which was originally applied to a 1939 Brighton Corporation trolleybus. I'm open to suggestion on the identity of this bus:
