Looks like a small photo I've found online of a 1934+my Bentley 3.5L sports saloon with Mulliner coachwork, but this is only a starter suggestion not a confirmed identification. Over to a Bentley expert - as a preserved and probably well-known example featured in a TV programme, it should be specifically identifiable.

This is without doubt a Derby Bentley, either 3 1/2 or 4 1/4 litre.

However, the way that the centre moulding droops towards the rear, enveloping the door handle and eventually turning up slightly at the tail, and the line of the luggage boot, with the spare wheel carried on the outside in a cover, suggests that this coachwork is by Freestone and Webb, and, according to "Bentley, 50 Years of the Marque" by Johnnie Green, page 173 top illustration, the design was only fitted to the 3 1/2 litre cars.

There were two Mulliners, H J Mulliner, and Arthur Mulliner. H J did not continue the coach line moulding onto the luggage boot, and Arthur did not include the rear door handles within the moulding as on the car above.

So, I would call this car a 1935 3 1/2 Litre with Freestone and Webb coachwork. If you look at the article from Hemmings that accompanies the link below, I think that this removes any possible doubt about who built this body.
