Full description from the producer:
This is our third video programme covering the Bristol VRTs of Wilts & Dorset. We have entitled it ?Riding the Series III?, as it concentrates on the series III VRs during a number of events in 2002/3. The programme opens on October 26th 2002 in Salisbury bus station at the start of a special VR Running Day organised by Wilts & Dorset. We take a number of rides on different VRs to various places such as Tidworth, Amesbury, Andover and Devizes to name but a few! There are scenes in the busy Salisbury bus station, and a visit to the bus wash at the depot. The day concludes with a VR running an ?X3? duty to Bournemouth via Ringwood – plenty of night time atmosphere.There is a visit to Bournemouth and Poole in September 2003 to catch up with the action, and then later on September 14th, a brief visit to the Warminster Running Day to see some VRs there. On October 12th 2003 we took out Damory liveried 5069 (GEL 685V) for the day to film her in familiar surroundings. Starting in Poole bus depot on a sunny autumn day we visit Sandbanks, Poole, Bournemouth, picturesque Christchurch and the New Forest, before returning to Poole via Ringwood.This video is a must for you if you are a Bristol fan! All the sounds are captured in glorious stereo, the scenery is breathtaking, the vehicles a classic in their own lifetime! Damory VR cover photos: Mark Bowman
