Wow! So glad you found this, this is City of Oxford Motor Services 373 (KFC373G), a 1968 Daimler Fleetline CRG6lX with Northern Counties lowheight (13'5" high) bodywork, in near original condition, in the traditional COMS livery it was delivered in. COMS traditionally operated AECs, such that when delivered this batch of Fleetlines were the first non-AECs for many years (ignoring the small batch of Dennis Lolines which in any case had AEC engines....). Note the illuminated 'Pay as you enter' signs on the front and side - these buses introduced one person operation to the Oxford fleet.

I've reviewed the footage, and apart from the City of Oxford AEC Renown heading the other way in the saem footage, immediately after this appears a real rarity, an AEC Bridgemaster with Park Royal body from the batch 306-15 (306-15MFC). It's dark, so I'll forgive it being missed, but I think there's only one other Bridgemaster on this site and it's not in original condition:

I didn't miss it, I just figured it was a bit too dark and blurry-ish to be listed, so I left the capture of that bus in the main comment section of this movie. But I guess now that you've identified it, I should include that bus in the movie as well :)

Can anyone validate that entry? Thanks.

Thank you for indulging me! It's the only Bridgemaster I've found in original condition in a feature film, and I agree it's a lousy capture.
