    The vehicle seen at 01:23 is a Leyland Leopard coach operated by Samuelsons, a subsidiary of the National Bus Company.

    Some of the same footage, as well as lots of extra material, exists in clip 3415.02. The appearance of several "L" registered vehicles in that footage dates this clip as being from at least August 1972.
