Region 2 DVD (may not be viewable outside Europe).


After more than 50 years in service, 2005 saw Londoners bid a tearful farewell to the famous red double decker Routemaster bus. Arguably the most loved and useful public transport vehicle ever built, it was killed off by a combination of 'health and safety' legislation and political correctness.

This programme provides a fascinating insight into the final few months of service, and captures the spirit of Londoners, angry at not being consulted over their bus's withdrawal.

As well as stunning images of these capital icons, passengers and staff alike talk frankly about the bus, its history and final months in service.

The programme also features the final day of routes 14 and 22 when thousands of Londoners turned out to cheer. As well as comprehensive coverage of this final day in service, FAREWELL TO THE ROUTEMASTER also goes behind the scenes with those closely associated with the iconic bus. The programme talks to drivers, conductors, engineers and passengers as well as including an interview with Transport for London about the reasons behind the decision to retire these popular vehicles.
