This one at the front is open top which is slightly unusual.
Road behind is very busy and many interesting vehicles pass, but not enough clarity sadly .

In 1957 Thames Valley acquired four 1940 Bristol K5G/Eastern Coachworks from Brighton Hove and District for use on an open top 'Riverside Express' service linking Reading, Henley, Marlow and Maidenhead. Three arrived as open toppers converted in 1956, 770 (CAP206), 771 (CAP132) and 773 (CAP211); the fourth, 772 (CAP176) was converted after it arrived. 770 was then transferred to South Midland for an open top service in Oxford. All four are seen in this movie, although only three can be identified.

Note that all the Thames Valley buses seen carry the fake fleetname 'Valley Town'.
