I have received the following email:
I am contacting you on behalf of the BBC One Show. I am currently setting up a feature which will look back at iconic stunts in UK TV history. One of these stunts is Frank Spencer’s roller skating incident during the series Some Mothers’ Do ‘Ave ‘Em. During the sequence Frank manages to attach himself to the back of a double decker bus, roller skate through a junction narrowly missing a red mini and a Ford Capri and skate underneath an articulated lorry. We have a professional stunt team (including a skater, two drivers and a coordinator), a contained closed off race track in which to recreate our stunt and we have located a 60s Mini and a Mk1 Ford Capri but we are missing the star of the show – the bus.
We are looking for a 1960s/70s RT or RM bus to appear in the programme. We are scheduled to shoot the piece on Monday 6th July at Longcross racetrack near Chertsey. We would love to invite the owner and their bus along to the shoot for the day, it should be a great piece and they will get the chance to see a professional stunt team at work.
Hopefully someone can help so if you fancy a day out with your family and your bus please contact me soonest.
