    I don't mind making it a movies only quiz. My recollections of the series individual episodes are hazy. Having said that, I don't know what was on the sign in On the Buses movie.

    I don't remember what was written on the sign either; but maybe something like:

    "No Parking; Buses Only" ?

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    Here's the lyrics to the 'On The Buses' theme:

    Oh! It's a great life on the buses,
    There's nothing like it, you'll agree.
    Take a ride on the buses,
    because there's plenty you can see.

    Oh! It's a great life on the buses,
    there is no better place to meet.
    So why not look around you,
    no need to leave your seat.


    Oh! It's a great life on the buses,
    no matter what the time of day.
    You can see the world up on the buses,
    were on our way.


    There's so much feeling on the buses,
    as people fumble for their fare.
    it always happens in the rushes
    they take there chance while it's there.


    It's so exciting on the buses,
    when some one is fumbling next to you.
    and when the traffic jams in rushes,
    there's little else to do.


    There's always gay life on the buses,
    make sure you leave your bird at home.
    You'll see so many on the buses,
    you won't be sitting on your own.


    It's so romantic on the buses,
    you'll find it thrilling when you ride,
    and you can get it on the buses,
    upstairs or down inside.


    Oh! It's a great life on the buses,
    no matter what the time of day,
    You'll see the world on the buses,
    were on our way.

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    For some reason, these big screen versions rarely if ever used the original theme music from the TV series. I wonder if it was due to copyright issues? I don't just mean the OTB films...Love thy Neighbour, UP Pompeii...all the ones I can think of did the same.

    In Holiday on the Buses, what happened to Olive in the camp's swimming pool?

    The first Please Sir movie in monochrome had the original theme tune; whereas the second movie in colour had a different theme tune

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.
