As the Routemaster bus reaches its 50th birthday, and is now being phased out in London, Linda Smith hops on board the nation's beloved double decker to celebrate its colourful life and times. Recalling her own fond memories of this very British icon, she talks to conductors, drivers, and enthusiasts, and discovers how the bus has inspired people, starred on screen, travelled the world, symbolised peace, and found many surprising new uses.
