Trusadh (MacTV-BBC Alba documentary series, 2008-)
Documentary series covering a variety of subjects in Scottish Gaelic, with hardcoded English subtitles.

Season 14:

Air na Busaichean (On the Buses)
A nostalgic look at buses in the Highlands and Islands, and a must-see for Bedford buffs in particular. Many vehicles are featured, mostly from years ago. Some of the photographs can be seen in John Sinclair's 2014 book Buses of Skye and the Western Isles (Amberley Publishing), so rather than reproduce all of them here, I'll advise you to click the link to that excellent publication. Mr Sinclair himself appears in the programme.
I've listed here the vehicles I've identified; there are many more to see: JS9239 (1951 Bedford OB/Duple)
2161MZ (1965 Bedford SB5/Duple Bella Vega)
