A Kind of Loving (1962, Alan Bates, June Ritchie)
Filmed in Bolton and Preston, Lancashire. Three Blackburn Corporation Guy Arab IVs with East Lancs bodies appear; 165 (NCB165) and 169 (NCP169), both new in 1961, are seen as works buses.
The main bus used, in several scenes, is 157 (KBV157), new in 1958:
Mike Keeley adds "Part of the film always looked to me as though shot in Preston, but with Blackburn buses.   Another interesting point is that the couple leave what I think is the old North Road coach station in Preston in a Plaxton bodied SB, but when they reach the seaside they alight from a Duple bodied one! The interior scene on the Guy is strange, with 'Alf Roberts' as the guard - at one point it sounds as though Bedford OB sound effects have been dubbed on!" The Plaxton SB is this one, JHG822 of Central of Burnley.
Two Ribble Leyland Atlanteans and an unidentifiable singledecker also appear:
The Duple SB is this one, reported to be arriving in Lytham St Annes, although as can be seen above the Plaxton SB has Southport as its destination.
