Shoestring (BBC private eye drama, 1979-80)


Episode 1:9: Find the Lady

Bristol-based series about a private eye retained by a radio station. Mike Walker comments: "Bristol Omnibus K type open top GHT127 appeared in the episode of 'Shoestring' that featured Toyah Wilcox as a punk singer. GHT was featured driving along the sea front at Weston super Mare with the baddy (Christopher Biggins?) sat upstairs discussing his evil plot.

A scene of a few seconds took three hours to shoot - I know because I was driving it!! By the end of shooting I had mastered the gearbox!"


The baddie, Kenrick, was indeed played by Christopher Biggins.

There is also a distant glimpse of the roof of a Bristol Omnibus Bristol VRT.
GHT127 is also seen in Soldier Soldier.
