STREETS OF LONDON

Streets of London explores different aspects of TfL operations in the capital and starts from a simple premise: If we find something interesting, you will too. With more than 8,000 vehicles in the various fleets, a huge number of routes and more than a hundred different bus types, it’s taken us the best part of a year to get round the entire network and form an accurate picture of the current scene. 

In this volume:

 The Square Mile: The City of London financial area isn’t all banks, grand buildings and branches of Starbucks. There’s dozens of bus routes too, criss-crossing the narrow streets in a mesmerising tangle. We un-pick the spaghetti and show you some of the very best locations to visit.
Single-Deckers: We round up some of the more interesting . . . by which we mean routes that are not only worked by Enviro 200s. 
Bendy Farewell: After a very short period, the articulated experiment in the capital has been brought to an end. Starting with route 25 and working through to the last survivor, route 207, this is our survey of the final year of Mercedes Citaro artics.
The RV1: You’ve probably heard about it, but have you seen it close up? The plan was to have eight hydrogen fuel cell buses running between Aldwych and Tower Hill in 2011, but the reality has been very different. Count the different types!Potters Bar: As a taster of future programmes, we head out into the country (about as far as you can go, London-wise) for a tour of the garage and a re-visit for the 2011 open day.
Touristas: Love them or hate them, sight-seeing tours do add extra interest. And there are so many.
iBus: What is it, where can you find it, how does it work, and what happens behind the scenes? We invade a control room to find out.
Routemasters: The 9H and 15H - RMs, refurbished, Stagecoach and First Group. London’s major icon marches on.

DVD Features: Motion-menus, chapter points and our commentary-off option.

Quality Assurance: Each DVD is factory-pressed from an original glass master.

PLUMSTEAD DELIVERS
The Story of a Bus Garage

Plumstead Garage in south-east London has an allocation of 185 buses, so keeping them all operational is a challenging task. We were allowed unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to find out how it’s done. Along the way we picked up a huge amount of detail, much of which has been incorporated in an informative script. Needless to say, the pictures are revealing too, and will provide you with a full understanding of how a big, modern bus garage operates:

 The programme sections:

~ A full tour of the mechnical areas, including the major repair shed, exam shed, brake test area, paint shop and MOT bay.
~ The control room, the iBus room, the drivers’ signing-on point and the back offices.
~ The evening run-in - showing the day’s entire allocation returning to base for fuel and a wash before being parked for the night. You will also see how buses are re-allocated for the next day.
~ The ‘cab ride’  features Plumstead’s route 122, running between the garage and Crystal Palace. We scissor out the really interesting bits and mix them with roadside shots.
~ The routes - A roadside view of all twelve of the garage’s double-deck and single-deck routes featuring every type on the allocation . . . including a surprise new arrival.

 Plumstead Delivers . . . and so does this DVD

LONDON GEMINI
 

Following on from the acclaimed London Enviro DVD, London Gemini is the first of two programmes devoted to the Wrightbus double-decker in London. It focuses on the early Eclipse and Pulsar batches delivered between 2001 and 2006, all of which were built onto either the Volvo B7TL chassis or the DAF/VDL DB250. A later volume will deal with the Gemini 2 variants introduced from 2008, as well as the hybrid buses.

Some 850 units of the first model were delivered to Arriva, Go-Ahead, the one-time East Thames, First Group and Travel London (later Abellio), alongside a speculative batch for London United. Like other bus designs in the capital, many were ordered for specific contract renewals or type changes, but the earliest models have now begun the inevitable march to the provinces as their London life comes to an end.

Programme sections are devoted to each of the main operating companies, there’s a separate review of the ‘odds & ends’, and a comparison between the Volvo and DAF units powering the buses. Detailed graphics list each of the batches as delivered, company by company and garage by garage, with a summary of the current allocation.

All this is illustrated with high-quality widescreen footage from across the TfL area, featuring almost every route the ‘Mark One’ Geminis currently work, and there’s an informative script to explain the background . . . in short, pretty much all you need to know about the Wright company’s first foray into the double-deck market.

Features: Motion menus, scene selection, ‘commentary off’ option.

LONDON’S HERITAGE
 

London’s Heritage features more than 115 working buses of eighteen different types once common on the streets of the capital. As well as in-depth sections on the most numerous survivors - RM, RML & RT - there's also a behind-the-scenes look at Ensignbus’s garage in Essex where many gems can be found in the workshops and the restoration shed. The RT-worked regular service alongside of the Epping & Ongar Railway also earns its own section.

As well as the central area Routemasters, the RMC & RCL sub-classes feature in the general double-decker section alongside RLHs, Daimler Fleetlines and the LT Museum's K-Type. Single-deckers divide into two groups - the especially numerous preserved RFs . . . and everything else, including the Leyland Tiger, the Merlin, the Guy Special and even the Leyland National.

Filmed at many diverse locations, including Brooklands, Duxford, Epping Forest, Maidstone, North Weald, Slough, Walthamstow, Weybridge, Windsor and Wisley, this nostalgic, non-stop footage truly has something for everyone.

SHOWBUS 2012
The Official DVD

 

Whether you attended Showbus 2012 or not, you won’t want to miss the DVD of the Duxford show. This remarkable event was covered by five of our cameramen from numerous locations in and around the site.

Programme sections include:

The Arrival - A huge variety of buses and coaches approach the site from all points of the compass but pass one of our camera crews somewhere. The Customs Posts - Once inside the site, each bus is received at ‘baggage claim’ and allocated its designated spot in the various displays. We were given unlimited access by the organisers, allowing our cameras to set up in restricted areas so you get the very best views of this fascinating part of the day. Around the Site - We pick out the most interesting exhibits from the displays and look around the extensive sales stand area. The Jubilee Parade - The aim was to include a bus from every year of the Queen’s reign to celebrate her 60th year. How many actually featured on the road run from Royston to Duxford, and how many more featured in the parade at the airfield? Anniversaries - As well as the Queen’s Jubilee, AEC celebrated its centenary in 2012, the red London RF reached the 60 year mark, and the Bedford twin-steer clocked up its half-century. So there were plenty of VALs and plenty of Regals to be seen . . . and more than a hundred AECs. The London display - Especially impressive in 2012 because of the AEC factor. Grouped by type, the individual buses were lined up in numerical order to provide numerous photo opportunties. We also take a look inside two of the more interesting vehicles. New deliveries - For the younger enthusiast and fans of the current scene, there were plenty of modern buses too, from the latest Enviros to the latest Wrightbuses and the London ‘Borismaster’ . . . and the first sightings of the new ‘62’ plates. As a bonus - Two former Maltese buses were in attendance and a coach which, despite being built in 1970, had never been registered!

Welcome to Showbus 2012 -

STREETS OF LONDON V2

The Streets of London series explores diverse aspects of TfL’s bus operations in the capital and starts from a simple premise: If we find something interesting, you will too. With more than 8,000 vehicles in the combined fleets, a huge number of routes and more than a hundred different bus types, there is always plenty to enjoy . . . as Streets of London sets out to show. In this volume:

New Buses For London: The two new types on London’s streets in 2012, both from Wrightbus - the single-deck Streetlite and, of course, the ‘Borismaster’. As well as day-to-day running on route 38, the section includes footage of the New Bus launch in Trafalgar Square in December 2011.
Central London: Following on from Volume One, this section takes a close look at the myriad of routes and types to be found in the central area of London - the ‘West End’, as it’s often known.
Route 3 Changeover: What happens when a new contract brings new buses onto a route? We follow the process with Abellio’s route 3, which exchanged Tridents for Enviro 400 hybrids at the start of 2012. We go behind the scenes at Battersea garage and then provide a ‘cab ride’ along the busiest section of the route, from Kennington to Oxford Circus.
London Archive: Everything changes so fast that five years back could be considered as archive. We take a trip to 2002 and find a bus scene that’s almost unrecognisable today.
Top Twenty: A rundown of numbers 1 to 20 route-wise . . . in  reverse order, of course.
Rail Replacements: On almost every weekend London buses stand in for trains, especially during the never-ending upgrade of the Underground. The big operators run alongside the smaller companies, as do lots of older buses, in this fascinating section.

DVD Features: Motion-menus, chapter points and our commentary-off option.

LONDON HERITAGE 2

Londons Heritage 2 features more than 100 working buses from twenty-two different types that once pounded the streets of the capital. In addition, there are extended features on the last Routemaster built, RML2760, and a stunning array of buses working Route 76 as part of Tottenham garage’s centenary celebrations.

As you would expect, all variants of the Routemaster, from the standard RM to the RML and RMC are covered in depth, as well as prototypes RM1 and RML3. Numerous RTs in their various forms also feature, along with types that traditonally receive  lesser billing than the icons. Older vehicles still, such as the G Type  and NS Type, also have their place on this DVD alongside more modernn  buses such as the Titan and the Olympian. Single-deckers like the RF and the GS feature prominently as they each celebrate  significant anniversaries in 2012/13. And there are Merlins, Leyland  Naional and Leyland Tiger too.

Filmed at numerous locations, including Alton, Brooklands, Duxford, East  Grinstead, Hertford, Maidstone, Sevenoaks, North Weald, South Mimms,  Walthamstow, Weybridge, Wisley and The City of London, the action is non-stop. If you love a drop of London nostalgia, this is the DVD for you.

PRESIDENT FADE-AWAY

The Plaxton President double-deck body, built by Northern Counties, first appeared in London in 1999. By the time production ended in 2005, more than a thousand vehicles had been supplied to London operators, built onto three different chassis types - Dennis Trident, Volvo B7TL and DAF DB250LF. They came in two lengths and some of the early examples even had centre staircases!

Now, in 2014, many of the early vehicles have been withdrawn from TfL work and those that remain are in the twilight of their careers.

This programme looks back over the last three years, showing many of the buses now withdrawn, several routes that Presidents no longer work, and those they still cling on to today.

Some continue working in the capital as trainers, others have become sightseeing buses, and surviving 'front-line' vehicles continue to turn up at weekends on rail replacement work. President Fade-away shows them all.

We also show the Saturday morning  arrivals from numerous locations inside and outside the park. There are views of buses arriving at the display area and being carefully positioned.
