First Direct
David Colin recalls an advertisement featuring an AEC Routemaster: "I drove a Ted Brakell owned RM in an advert for First Direct Bank. The filming took place on Good Friday 1990 and involved driving from Wandsworth Common around south west and central London to get as many landmarks in the background as possible. About 40 people were involved and the bus interior was dismantled to get everything on board. External and internal shots were taken but the result was a 15 second ad showing no more than 2 elderly ladies, sitting on the top deck of a bus, discussing how they had not understood the recent First Direct billboard advert which had simply shown a bucket full of sand. I collected the bus from the store near Maidstone at 5.00 am and arrived back at about midnight."
