Holiday (BBC travel programme, 1967-2007)

Opening credits of Holiday 69 shown (surprise) in 1969 feature an unidentified British coach, possibly Weymann bodied (?). A report from the series on coach travel has footage of Wallace Arnold 208HUM, a Leyland Leopard PSU3 on a tour to the Isle of Man and the English Lakes. This footage can be
seen in a BBC documentary series 'The Way We Travelled'.

Terry Jones notes the show "variously featured coach tours and heritage services during the 1990s, including the following:
1950 Bedford OB/Duple BJV590 - 'The Trossachs Trundler' (Easter 1994)
1948 Austin CXB/Barnard VVS913 ' Katie' on the Isles of Scilly.
Classique Coaches, Scottish Highlands (December 1995), with 1950 AEC Regal III/Duple LTA629, and also one of the ex-Southdown Leopards with Harrington Cavalier body.

Cosy Coach Tours, at Hardwick Hall, near Sheffield, with 1948 Bedford OB/Duple ATS408."

A Holiday 2004 show on California and the Yosemite National Park briefly features the Green Tortoise and one of its green touring coaches.

Chris Hough reports: "The BBC Holiday Programme broadcast on 29 March 2004 featured a break in Majorca which suggested a good way to see Palma was by using the open top bus tour The vehicle in a red livery appeared to be similar to the open top East Lancs Dennis vehicles used in Paris although one of them did carry the fleetname PMT!"

In Holiday 2005, Chris Hough noted a blue and fawn AEC Routemaster seen in a show which visited Ushuaia in Argentina, the most southerly city on earth. This is former London Transport RM317 (WLT317)
