Mutiny On The Buses – 1972
The second of three movie spin offs from the popular TV Series, sees Stan and company up to their necks in trouble again.
When Stan agrees to marry Susy, there’s much anguish from the rest of the family, particuarly when Arthur loses his job meaning Stan is the main money earner. He agrees to delay the wedding while teaching Arthur to drive a bus.
Meanwhile there is mutiny at the depot when the Depot Manager installs a new radio control system in all the buses (borrowing an idea previously used in the episode “Radio Control”). Jack tampers with the radio system and crosses the wires with the police frequency and several misunderstandings ensue.
Stan and Jack get into various scrapes, including a fire drill and a special tours trip to Windsor Safari Park, all to the exasperation of Inspector Blake.
