The following are captures from the movie The White Bus ( IMDB Link). This was a short movie made in 1967 starring Arthur Lowe. It was based upon a story by Shelagh Delaney most famous for A Taste of Honey. It was a quite surreal movie which followed the adventures of a suicidal young secretary who experiences a hallucinatory tour of London on the open top bus tour of the Mayor Arthur Lowe. However, much of the film was shot in Salford including a one minute scene which sees a tour of Kersal Flats. The footage of Kersal Flats was shot from the roof of Chaucer Court.

The movie has never been commercially released so the quality of the film is less than perfect. There are some still images here and the full clip is in the movies section.
