Routemaster

For those of us who hove fond memories of the London RouteMaster buses there is a documentary on BBC4 tonight at 22:00:
Arena: Routemasters! The Double Decker Bus Conductors
I loved the sound of them plus they were great for jumping off the back as they slowed down as they turned the closest corner to my street saving a longer walk back.
I remember a friend arriving at school one day covered in cuts and bruises where he attempted to jump on at some lights but the bus started to move as he as mid air and he missed. No Health & Safety inquires back then... Just the conductor scolding with a few words along the lines of "That was a bit silly"
Edit: Just noticed it's a repeat
