On the Buses is a British situation comedy created by Ronald Wolfe and Ronald Chesney , broadcast in the UK from 1969 to 1973. The writers had enjoyed successes with The Rag Trade and Meet the Wife for the BBC . The BBC rejected On the Buses and the duo turned to the ITV company London Weekend Television . The show was accepted and despite a poor critical reception became a hit with viewers.
Stan Butler ( Reg Varney ) works as a bus driver for the Luxton & District Traction Company. He lives with his bingo -loving, widowed and overbearing mother ( Cicely Courtneidge , later Doris Hare ), his frumpy sister , Olive ( Anna Karen ), and his lazy brother-in-law , Arthur ( Michael Robbins ). The bane of Stan's life is Inspector Cyril "Blakey" Blake ( Stephen Lewis ), who is often checking up on him and his conductor and friend, the cheerful, bucktoothed Jack Harper ( Bob Grant ). Blakey threatens them with the sack for lateness and untidiness; he sports a toothbrush moustache and general appearance in the image of Adolf Hitler . His catchphrases are "I 'ate you Butler!" and "You've made my day." In later years Arthur and then Stan left the series, Olive worked for the bus company and Blakey moved in to board at Mum's house.

An important Note To USA & Canadian Buyers
( American and Canadian buyers should note that although the discs are Multi-Region formatted and will work in Region 1 format they are actually encoded for PAL transmission, therefore it is the buyerâ€™s/ potential buyerâ€™s responsibility to check their equipment is compatible before purchasing - as refunds will not be given due to Copy & Watch being possible.
With this in mind most modern/ quality NTSC players in America and Canada will still play PAL discs all the same - but this is a decision the overseas buyer will have to make.
Also, should you really wish to purchase but think that your standard DVD player wonâ€™t be compatible then the DVDâ€™s will still work in any PC DVD-ROM drives worldwide. )
