Channel 4 has commissioned a new three-part series looking at life aboard London’s night buses.
The programme makers will install cameras on several buses, starting with one running on route N29, to capture the interactions between passengers and staff.
Channel 4’s head of documentaries, Emma Cooper, said: “This series will show the people who call this place home, those who visit and those who make their money here – and will highlight the unlikely friendships and moments that all spring up on the top deck of the number 29.
“We’ll capture the vast scale of the night bus’s operations, and the breadth and number of Londoners that it caters for.
“With warmth and humour the series will focus on the stories passengers bring on board and their interactions with one another and the drivers in this snapshot of late night London life.”
The Night Bus is being made with the co-operation of Transport for London and will be broadcast next year.
Mike Weston, TfL’s Director of Buses, said: “London’s Night Bus network is one of the best in the world, with thousands of staff working around the clock to get Londoners safely to where they need to go at any hour of the day.
“We’re delighted to be able to showcase the hard work of the women and men, working through the night, to keep London moving.
