Reg Varney stars as Stan, the cheeky-chappie bus driver in this classic LWT sitcom. He's lucky enough to be paired with his best friend, Jack (Bob Grant), as the conductor on his bus, but still spends all of his time complaining. When they're not out on the road, they're eating, avoiding Stan's family, or more usually trying to get one up on Stephen Lewis's obnoxious Inspector Blake - who seems to spend half of his time trying to get them out of the depot on time, and the other half trying to get them fired.

Our Review: A little dated for the average modern audience, but still good saucy fun at heart. For fans of early 1970s 'suggestive' comedies, it's a perfect match.
