"Comedy Classics" is a series celebrating six memorable British sitcoms and exploring what made them so special. Today's programme features LWT/ London Weekend Television series "On the Buses," one of the most longest running and popular sitcoms ever to appear on our TV screens which revolved around loveable bus driver Stan Butler, his down-to-earth family, best friend and work colleague Jack, and their arch enemy, Inspector Blakey. Remember ON THE BUSES with Stan, Jack and Blakey, not forgetting the delightful Olive and her layabout husband Arthur, plus of course dear old Mum. "On The Buses" was a classic British situation comedy, created by Ronald Wolfe and Ronald Chesney, which ran for seven series from 1969 to 1973, and introduced a host of much-loved memorable characters. The series followed the ups and downs of life on the buses as portrayed by two work shy-busmen, Stan Butler (played by Reg Varney) and his mate Jack Harper (Bob Grant) as they invented new scams to wind up their long suffering boss, inspector Cyril Blakey Blake (Stephen Lewis). On The Buses aired in an era where entertainment was unrestrained by politically correct rules but hilarious scripts and quality acting guaranteed the series a legion of loyal fans around the globe. With contributions from writers Ronald Wolfe and Ronald Chesney, actresses Anna Karen and Ursula Mohan, plus June Sarpong, Ian Wright and Wendy Richard.
