Betsy the London Taxi

A Fare to Remember

An Irishman and a Welshman hire a London taxi to drive half way around the world raising money for charity. Dame Edna Everage waves them off from Buckingham Palace and many thousands of miles later they are greeted at the Sydney Opera House by then Prime Minister, Bob Hawke.

The star of the film is ‘Betsy’ the taxi who after the adventure of a lifetime, 10 years retirement in country Victoria is taking a year out as a display in Gilbert’s Motor Museum, Strathalbyn, South Australia.

Filmed, produced & directed by Michael Dillon. Editor: Michael Balson. Music by David Skinner and Michael Atherton.
