Just Australian Buses 6 by Greg Travers, begins with a look at Sydney’s evening peak during the VIVID light show; Sydney private bus operators from 1988 to the early 1990s; then mostly NSW north coast double deckers on Disc One. Disc Two begins with State Transit Sydney’s trial 14.5 metre buses, including filming from the air courtesy of our guest, the State Transit Authority of NSW Video Unit; we visit Darwin in 1988 and 2001; quickly look at horse buses and finally Hunter Valley and Newcastle Area Private Operators mainly in the mid-1970s.

To expand, we visit Circular Quay in 2015, then Wynyard and Town Hall, with VIVID as a backdrop, all filmed at night. We next see a variety of vehicles from Sydney private operators, dating back to the 1960s, including rides in Bedfords. Former British Leyland Atlanteans were prominent along the NSW north coast during 1970s and 1980s. We see them operating alongside local vehicles. Rare footage of the State Transit 14.5 metre long bus trials, before a large batch were ordered. Then and Now, visits Darwin. We see a replica horse bus in service in Sydney, then look at Hunter Valley and Newcastle Private Operators.

There are scenes included, which are of a lesser quality, but for their historical significance, have been retained. Cine film; analogue, digital, Hi-8 and high definition video footage and some still photography, are all combined in the program. Digitised cine film and some early video, has been dubbed with live sound.

There is no narration, but the bus sounds are accompanied by informative sub-titles.

We hope that you enjoy Just Australian Buses 6 by Greg Travers, which is the 22nd title in the “Just…” transport series, which includes rail and tram titles.

Look out for Just Australian Buses 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5.
