Oh No, It's Selwyn Froggitt! (Yorkshire TV comedy series, 1974-7)


Misadventures of a gormless but well-meaning Yorkshire bloke.

These two sightings appear courtesy of stronghold:

Episode 1.1:
This bus is so far unidentified - I'd speculate it's a Leyland Tiger Cub, but it could be an AEC Reliance:
Episode 2.3:
A coach trip on MYG137P, a Bedford VAS5/Plaxton new to Clayforth of Guiseley in 1976

Season 4 is simply titled 'Selwyn' and saw our hero taking up a job at a somewhat bleak Yorkshire holiday camp. Episode 4.01: The Road to Paradise Valley:
Our hero causes chaos at the bus station while attempting to travel to Paradise Valley with his bicycle. Seen are National Travel East YWE510M and YWE513M, Plaxton bodied Leyland Leopards new to National Travel North East:
The red and white coach in foreground in the fourth screencap is the one Selwyn boards. It's Shipley Coachways TDH203M, a Bedford VAS5/Duple Dominant new to Freeman of Walsall. Almost inevitably the tired plot includes the coach breaking down and having to be transported on a lowloader:
Episode 4.03: Better Late Than Never:
Selwyn organises a trip on a bus for the campers - the bus turns out to be former Portsmouth Corporation 5 (RV6358), a 1935 Leyland Titan TD4 with English Electric body converted to open top in 1953 (thank you Rob Sissons for this sighting):
There is an altercation with the driver before they're allowed to board:
On the return trip Selwyn is left behind:
