Bristol Built Lodekka Bus co-stars in TV Production Picture permission from London Weekend Television. London Weekend Television show 'On the Buses' featuring Reg Varney - Cicely Courtneidge - Anna Karen - Stephen Lewis and Bob Grant. A genuine Bristol built Lodekka bus was used inside the studio and for outside location shots. Reg Number AEV 811F. Each week a live studio audience sees the series recorded and during some of the scenes Reg Varney. as the bus driver Stan Butler. has to actually start the engine. "In the confined studio space, we suddenly realised that if we weren’t careful we would gas the audience in a way we didn’t want " says Reg. So the ever-ingenious technicians at London Weekend Television’s studios devised a way of boxing-in the bus’s exhaust and piping the exhaust fumes straight out of the studios and away from the audience of 250. The Eastern National Company’s chief driving instructor gave Reg Varney a tryout in the cab of AV 811 F and quickly formed the impression that he would be very suitable material for training as a bus driver. During the period of the filming, when the Eastern National fleet name was covered up by the "Luxton & District" name board, several members of the public actually went into the office and enquired whether the company had been taken over. At one stage during the filming an Eastern National saloon came into the depot and got in on the act. When the Film Director realised that it was displaying "Eastern National" he had a "Luxton & District" slip stuck over the fleet name on the rear and while this solved the immediate problem, all concerned forgot the slip was there and when the vehicle went off down the road with the "Luxton & District" slip on the back it was chased by a horrified depot inspector, who fortunately caught it up at the traffic lights. The 1960s and 70s comedy sitcom On The Buses proved to be one of ITV's most popular series of all time. We find out why? Created by Ronald Wolfe and Ronald Chesney - the scriptwriting duo responsible for the popular sitcom The Rag Trade - On the Buses was condemned by many as brash and vulgar - but the public loved it. Rejected by the BBC, it turned out to be the ace in the pack for rivals ITV, just the sort of production they needed to boost viewing figures. Going out on a Friday at 7.30pm, the sitcom was, in essence, a vehicle for the talents of chirpy 52-year-old Reg Varney, who drew on his working-class background to portray bachelor bus driver Stan Butler. Stan still lived at home with his widowed, bingo-loving mum (Cicely Courtneidge, and later, Doris Hare) his permanently unemployed sister Olive (Anna Karen) and his layabout brother-in-law Arthur (Michael Robbins). Other locations found Stan on the road, driving his Number 11 double decker bus, or at the depot of the Home Counties-based Luxton and District Traction Company, where he teamed up with his pal, bus conductor and sometime lothario Jack Harper (Bob Grant). Their antics, much to the delight of viewers, never failed to upset petty-minded Inspector "Blakey" Blake (Stephen Lewis) whose lip-quivering "I'll get you, Butler" and "I 'ate you, Butler!" didn't take long to become national catchphrases. Good-looking, busty "clippies" apparently found the "Jack the lads" very fanciable - often nipping up to the top deck for some "slap and tickle". On The Buses, amazingly, remained a prime-time ITV sitcom for some 74 half-hour episodes over four years. There were even three spin-off, full-length Hammer films - On The Buses (1971), Mutiny On The Buses, (1972) and Holiday On The Buses (1973) The first of these was the top box-office hit of 1971, surpassing Diamonds Are Forever, the James Bond movie. Michael Robbins quit before the final series - his character Arthur finally walked out on Olive and there was talk of divorce. Even Reg Varney, the mainstay of the sitcom, became tired of all the japes and sexual innuendo and left after seven episodes of the final 13. His character Stan, apparently, went off to work in a bus factory in the Midlands. At this point "Blakey" - now the series' main attraction - moved into the Butler household as a lodger and a new "clippie", Jessie, played by Yootha Joyce, arrived on the scene. Wolfe and Chesney were, by this time, no longer exclusive writers for the series. Actors Bob Grant and Stephen Lewis began contributing scripts, as did Jonathan Lynn and George Layton. Blakey's character was eventually spun-off into a new Wolfe and Chesney sitcom, Don't Drink The Water, while Olive's character (played again by ex-stripper Anna Karen) resurfaced in a 1970s revival of The Rag Trade. After this series finished in 1975, Stephen Lewis spent some time "resting" before resurfacing as Nora Batty's lodger in Last Of The Summer Wine. Like many other Lond

Deborah Kerr
Dutch postcard. Photo: MGM. British film star Deborah Kerr (1921-2007) was nicknamed The English Rose for her fresh natural beauty. In many films the stage, television and film actress played 'classic' English ladies, but during the 1950’s she became known for her versatile roles in major Hollywood productions. Deborah Kerr was born as Deborah Jane Kerr-Trimmer in 1921, Helensburgh, Scotland. She was the daughter of Captain Arthur Kerr-Trimmer, a World War I veteran pilot who became a naval architect and civil engineer, and his wife Kathleen Rose Smale.A shy, insecure child, she found an outlet for expressing her feelings in acting. Her aunt Phyllis Smale, a radio star and director of the Hicks-Smale Drama School in Bristol, became her first acting coach. Her aunt got her some stage work when she was a teenager. Deborah first performed at the Open Air Theatre in Regent's Park, London. She subsequently performed with the Oxford Repertory Company in 1939-1940. Her first appearance on the West End stage was as Ellie Dunn in Heartbreak House at the Cambridge Theatre in 1943. She performed in France, Belgium and Holland with ENSA (Entertainments National Service Association, or Every Night Something Awful) - The British Army entertainment service. Her first film appearance was a small role in Contraband (1940, Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger), but her scenes were deleted. British film producer Gabriel Pascal noticed and cast her in his film of George Bernard Shaw's Major Barbara (1941) as Jenny Hill a girl of the salvation army. Her wonderfully fresh natural beauty and incisiveness of playing were on show in John Baxter's Love on the Dole (1941) and Lance Comfort's Hatter's Castle (1941), in both as women who stumble sexually, by altruistic design in the former, through heartless seduction in the latter. Michael Powell made her a major star of the British cinemaby giving her the triple role of the hero’s three women in The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (1943, Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger). Nest she played the dowdy wife who blossoms in wartime in Perfect Strangers (1945, Alexander Korda);and the assertive Irish spy in I See a Dark Stranger (1946, Frank Launder). Then Powell cast her unforgettably as Sister Clodagh, forced to confront her own repressions in the Himalayan setting of Black Narcissus (1947, Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger). The film was a hit in the USA as well as the UK, and Kerr won the New York Film Critics' Award as Actress of the Year. In 1947, Deborah Kerr went to Hollywood. Her surname was pronounced there as "car", not "kerr" In order to avoid confusion over pronunciation, Louis B. Mayer billed her as "Kerr rhymes with Star!" She repeated for MGM her success in films like The Hucksters (1947) opposite Clark Gable, Edward, My Son (1949, George Cukor) and the historical epic Quo Vadis (1951, Mervyn Le Roy). For her role as the wife who falls into dipsomania in Edward, My Son, she was both nominated for a Golden Globe and an Academy Award, but won neither. After a while she tired of playing prim-and-proper English ladies. “I came over here [Hollywood] to act, but it turned out all I had to do was to be high-minded, long suffering, white-gloved and decorative”, she was quoted. Then came an opportunity to expand with From Here to Eternity (1953, Fred Zinnemann). Originally Joan Crawford was meant to play the adulterous military wife who has an affair with Burt Lancaster, but when Crawford insisted on shooting the film with her own cameraman, the studio balked. They decided to take a chance and cast Deborah Kerr, who made the most of the adulteress who makes love with Burt Lancaster on a Hawaii beach amidst the crashing waves. The casting worked, the film was a success, and Kerr received her second Oscar nomination. And her career thereafter enjoyed a new, sexier versatility. She was quoted: “I don't think anyone knew I could act until a put on a bathing suit”. In 1953, she also achieved success on the Broadway stage in Tea and Sympathy, reprising her role in the film version Tea and Sympathy (1956, Vincente Minnelli). That same year, she played one of her best-remembered screen roles, Mrs. Anna Leonowens in the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The King and I (1956, Walter Lang), although her singing voice in the film was dubbed by Marni Nixon. More success followed in Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison (1957, John Huston), An Affair to Remember (1957) with Cary Grant, Separate Tables (1958, Delbert Mann), The Sundowners (1960, ), The Innocents (1961, Jack Clayton) and The Night of the Iguana (1964, John Huston). Originally when filming began on Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison (1957), her co-star Robert Mitchum worried that Kerr would be like the prim characters she frequently played. However, after she swore at director John Huston during one take, Mitchum, who was in the water, almost drowned laughing. The two stars went on to have an enduring frie
