On the Buses

Colour titles from series 3 and 5. On The Buses gave us such unforgettable characters as the plain and pathetic Olive, the toothy lothario conductor Jack and the obsessive Inspector Blake. The series was an earthy vehicle for Reg Varney, supported by Bob Grant, Cicely Courtneidge – later Doris Hare – Anna Karen, Michael Robbins and Stephen Lewis. It also inspired three absolutely revolting spin-off movies, which were among the last satanic rites of Hammer Films.
