Oliver Campbell ("People call me Smiley") plays the 394 bus Driver

Smiley will also conduct one of our Hackney Guided tours

He also in fact is a 394 bus Driver who put us in touch with the lovely ctplus bus company who kindly lent us one of their busses to film on for a whole afternoon ("Yes, we like community and we like Hackney"- Frank Villeneuve-Smith, CTPlus). We of course requested that Smiley himself be the driver.

nb: 394 has always had a neighbourhood feel, wiggling through estates as it does. It is also the first London bus on which a baby was born
"Oh Yes Dennis, he's 5 now, we celebrated his first birthday at the bus garage"- Smiley
