Knack . . . and How to Get It, The  - Colin (Michael Crawford) chases after his bus to work. Don't be fooled by the bus - it's green!! At the time of filming, route 301 was a London Country service between Watford Heath and Aylesbury via Watford, Hemel Hempstead and Berkhamsted. Kings Langley and Berkhamstead can be made out on the blind. It appears that at least two country buses were used during shooting. Looking north along Shepherd's Bush Road towards Shepherd's Bush Green in W12. Identified by Patrick Brown.
