Not on Your Nellie (Granada sitcom, 1974-5)
This London pub-based vehicle for the redoubtable Hylda Baker seems terribly dated now, but the opening credits are notable for the arrival of her character in London by National Express coach - specifically Samuelsons OLL281L, a Leyland Leopard PSU5/Plaxton, lettered for the Manchester-London service:
Episode 1.01: Nellie Comes to Town
In this episode only, we see Nellie's arrival at Victoria Coach Station. We see other coaches in National Express livery, including North Western 371 (SJA371J), a Leyland Leopard PSU3A/4R/Plaxton:

Episode 1.04: The Restless Spirit
The regulars at the pub go out on a coach trip on red-liveried Bedford VAS5/Thurgood OUC658F, with both interior and exterior footage. This was the last Thurgood-bodied coach built - the fleetname is on the back only, and is in gold gothic lettering. Graeme Selway notes the vehicle was new to Cheek, London (trading as Elms Coaches) - but who was operating it in 1974?
