Life of Riley (BBC sitcom, 2009)
Episode 1.2: New Beginnings

Comedy vehicle for Caroline Quentin; this episode has a sequence in which she tries to get on three buses. The first pulls away without her, she is thrown off the second. Later while driving her car she bumps into one of them. Only one bus seems to have been used, M277JGB, and in fact some of the footage from the first incident is reused in the third. In the second the bus has advertising vinyls applied and the only letter of the registration visible is 'N', but otherwise it's identical:

M277JGB is a Volvo Olympian/ Alexander new to Dublin bus as RA227 (reg 95D227). In May 2008 it went to Scottish operator McColl of Balloch, fleet number VO5 and reregistered M277JGB, in whose livery it's seen in 'Life of Riley'. The interior footage reveals the Dublin Bus fleet number inside the front windscreen.
