100 Years of British Buses: The technology which has allowed the moving image to be captured is now more than 100 years old. To mark this centenary, Demand DVD in association with Ian Allan Publishing bring a series of programmes which explore the evolution of different aspects of public transport in Britain over the last 100 years. The four programmes, compiled mainly from archive material, some of which dates back to the early 1900 s, are now being made available on DVD for the first time. Material from dozens of towns and cities is featured in this programme. In addition to the various vehicles featured, this DVD provides a wonderfully evocative recollection of how much has changed in the urban environment over the years, in relation to street furniture, cars, shop fronts and fashions. A sheer nostalgic pleasure, this carefully edited programme, backed by informative commentary will appeal both to transport enthusiasts and to the increasing numbers interested in twentieth century social history. Trolleybus Days in Belfast: In the 1950s, Belfast had the largest fleet of trolleybuses to be found in the UK outside London. Introduced from 1938 onwards to replace Belfast s trams, the high capacity, clean and quiet trolleybuses, were a familiar sight on the streets of the city for the next 20 years. Trolleybus Days in Belfast presents colour films from 1963 featuring all the routes which were active at that time, including those to the east of the city which were withdrawn in that year. Additional material focuses on such once familiar scenes as barges and steamers on Belfast Lough and horse-drawn drays and carts progressing through the streets of the city. This programme will delight those interested in Belfast s fine trolleybuses, but more than that, it offers nostalgic memories of the city in the balmy days of the 1960s before the combined efforts of the troubles and the planners radically changed the appearance of the city forever. Keith Beedons World of Buses & Trams 1960 - 1986: Buses have been a common sight on the roads, since long before buses were powered by internal-powered combustion engine in 1895. Taken from his personal film archive, Keith Beeden introduces and narrates a journey through 30 years of transport history from 1960 through to 1986. Primarily filmed in the north of England, highlights include the 1967 Lord Mayor s Parade in Sheffield, an open day at Bradford Museum, Leyland s 90th anniversary celebrations in 1986 and the National Tramway Museum at Crich. Buses around Britain: Everyday buses can be seen throughout Britain s roads, either for use as public transport, tour buses as well as privately chartered and privately owned buses. Journey around Britain looking at buses old and new, some working, others lovingly restored and on display. We start at Keighley s annual Transport Rally and then move to the busy cities of Wakefield and Newcastle to see buses fulfilling their day-to-day duties. From there we are off to the Black Country Living Museum, the Scottish Vintage bus Museum and the North Weald Rally, before enjoying the hustle and bustle of London, Halifax and Glasgow.
