Further information: David Hamilton’s films form part of a collection which documents his enthusiasm for public transport (and especially buses) in the Borough of Redbridge and across London, capturing special days and everyday travel.
Whilst not all of these films show the London Borough of Redbridge, they are kept together as an archive of his filmmaking.
t was actually possible to board the buses and experience being on a bus as it skid. Unfortunately, the filmmaker didn't film from inside the bus, but even from the outside, it is still a spectacle which Health and Safety wouldn't allow today.
Locations: United Kingdom, London, Chiswick
