Behind the Scenes at the Museum (BBC documentary series, 2010)
Episode 1:
A look at the British Commercial Motor Museum concentrates more on the conflicting personalities among the staff than on the vehicles. When we do see the buses, the view tends to be a partial or 'artistic' shot. There are some gems to be seen, however, among the museum exhibits. This view shows Bournemouth trolleybus 301 (301LJ), a 1962 Sunbeam MF2B/Weymann, alongside Ribble 963 (JRN29), a Leyland Tiger Cub/Burlingam new in 1956, and Warrington 112 (OED217), a rare Foden PVD6/East Lancs from 1956.
