No better view of the bus, but the livery looks strangely Birmingham-ish.

I think you're right ... the car is a small 1945+ Austin, probably an Eight.

If the average film editor can't tell the difference between one car and another you can't expect them to spot the difference between a Birmingham Standard, straight staircase, small window lighting the stairs, cream and blue livery, and an RT.

First generation 'Birmingham Front', so might be a Daimler or a Guy Arab. http://www.bammot.org.uk/vehicles/vjoj976.asp

Confirmed as Birmingham footage taken from a 1955 BBC documentary called "Has Britain Got A Colour Bar?" - I've just seen a longer version of the clip on t'telly in another documentary about the early Caribbean arrivals into Britain. Bus is fully shown except a bloke's head prevents sight of the grille.

The grille wouldnĺt help much unless you could see the detail as the tin front Birmingham standards all looked very similar.
