Ashes to Ashes (BBC policetime travel series, 2008-10)
Episode 2.4:
Follow-up to the brilliant 'Life on Mars' has a slightly unconvincing evocation of London's Victoria Coach Station in the 1980s. Three Plaxton-bodied coaches from Kenzies of Shepreth in Cambridgeshire are seen representing vehicles from the National Bus Company, and there is much use of the National Bus double N logo.
Definitely identifiable is CVE12V - Martin Stubbings advises; " As a result of discussions with fellow enthusiasts in the Anglia Bus Forum and checking photographs of current Kenzies vehicles to match livery styles I believe the three coaches to be XVE8T, CVE12V and LEW16W." The first two mentioned are Volvo B58/Plaxton from 1979 and 1980; the third is a Volvo B10M/Plaxton from 1981.
