The Moneymakers (January 1964)
A documentary exploring the work of the Royal Mint, this film has a number of London scenes. In one, London Transport RM1607 (607DYE) on route 36A leads an unidentified Leyland Titan RTL on route 30.
There are views of money changing hands for various reasons, and this nice shot of a market stall with 1964 prices:
The footage of the process of minting money is detailed and extensive:

One Square Mile (January 1964)
A look at the City of London predictably features London buses, such as an early Routemaster and an RTL:
More interesting is this rare London Country RFW coach, an Eastern Coachworks-bodied AEC Regal IV, one of only 15 built for London:

Delta 8-3 (July 1960)
This fascinating documentary about the Vulcan bombers based at RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire and their crews also features the Bedford buses used as transport to the aircraft.
In one sequence the crews scramble to get into the air

Lifeline (December 1959) The story of a Royal Naval ship, the RFA Tidereach on a journey from Britain to the USA, this has brief footage of a New York transit bus as the newly arrived sailors stand on the street. It's probably Fifth Avenue Coach Company GM 'Old Look' TDH 4507 new in 1946 - thank you to Alan Aaron, who identifies the location as the west side of Fifth Avenue and at the edge of Central Park.

Transport Command (November 1961)
This film has extensive footage of RAF Lyneham in the days before it became known as the home of the RAF's Hercules transport aircraft. This Bedford is seen briefly entering the base:
Many of the RAF's fleet of Bristol Britannias are seen at rest:
When the action switches to Aden we see this De Havilland Comet, with a Blackburn Beverley in the background.
The Beverleys were at the time by far the biggest aircraft operated by the Royal Air Force, and closely associated with RAF Abingdon.
This closeup of XM106 of 84 Squadron shows the rear cargo doors, then the same aircraft taxis for takeoff, with two more Beverleys in the background:
In Nairobi, the camera just misses this green singledecker:
This Guy Arab (?) singledecker is caught in traffic.....
...but this Albion has a clearer road:

Reels Within Reels (October 1964)
No bus views here, but this look at the recording industry includes footage of an E-type Jaguar with a record player fitted:

No Place Like Home (date?)
A light hearted look at house building down the ages includes a distant view of a London RT family bus:
