[Tex] knows more about On the Buses than we do, and we wrote the bloody thing! --Ronald Wolfe and Ronald Chesney (Series Creators/Writers)
What a labour of love! I have just finished reading the book, and read right through without a break, which is unusual for me. I really, really enjoyed it. Fascinating information as well as being fun! Tex should feel very proud indeed. Great! --Ursula Mohan (Actress - On the Buses)
There will be a lot of happy people out there once this book is released. The author has somehow managed to find and interview people we assumed had left the business years ago, there are some brilliant new pictures, juicy anecdotes, and the majority of the information in it is new to even us (And thats saying something!) Absolutely 100% the best comedy reference book I have read in many years. --Onthebuses.net (On the Buses Appreciation Society)
From the Publisher

Tex Fisher has done a remarkable job compiling what will undoubtedly became the standard work on the show. He has in-depth biographies of the cast as well as a total episode guide with the exact dates of broadcast, which shows how much research he has done. How many so-called authoritative books have you seen where the author lazily lists only the year the show was aired? Fisher also has included features on the three spin-off films plus the little-known American version of the show "Lotsa Luck".
He has tracked down and interviewed nearly all the surviving members of the cast and crew apart from Stephen Lewis who apparently has become something of a recluse in his latter years. Still, there are enough stories about him from Fisher's interviewees to more than make up for this lacuna. Who would have thought that Reg Varney, the star of the show, was jealous of Lewis but he was and here Fisher explains why. You'll have to buy the book to find out the reason and the identity of the other cast member that Lewis clashed with.
The only thing I 'ate about this book is that I didn't write it!
But I digress.
If you were a big fan of On The Buses, buy the book and be whisked back in time to the early 70's when buses had conductors and be entertained by it. It was one of the better biographies of my favourite TV programmes and I am glad I purchased it and who knows, at some stage in the future I may read it again, to refresh my memory again. It was a good read and made me laugh several times.
Brilliant...definitely a must read for the fourty somethings out there.
the kindle edition is terrible , words not spelt corectly.
sub chapters dropped halfway into the middle of words ,the index at the front is all over the place . words such as episode split epi-sode.
